ROTC is always looking for Scholars, Athletes, and Leaders within the community.  If you meet our criteria, you may be eligible for an Army ROTC scholarship!

Not all benefits are monetary.  Cadets learn the art leadership, gain experience and develop their self-confidence.  Graduates receive a Presidential appointment to serve in the United States Army as a Second-Lieutenant.  As an officer in the United States Army, you will have the opportunities to enjoy additional benefits including, but not limited to:

  • Low cost world-wide travel
  • 30 days annual vacation
  • Initial pay higher than the average starting salary for college graduates
  • Opportunities to pursue higher education paid for by the Army


"But what's my obligation", you ask?

     By accepting an Army ROTC Scholarship, you will serve an initial active duty obligation of four years.  You may also serve in the Army National Guard or the Army Reserve.  (Enrolling in the 100-200 level Military Science courses or attending the Army ROTC Basic Course do not commit you to any term of service unless you have accepted an Army ROTC Scholarship.)

For more information about terms of service, contact SFC Gullett at 765-285-1637 or 1 (800) 552-7721.
