Leadership That Lasts a Lifetime

Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Scholarship

If you are interested in receiving an Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) scholarship and commissioning into the Army Reserve, the Minuteman Scholarship provides you an excellent opportunity.

Minuteman Scholarships cover 4 years of full tuition and fees or $10,000 for room and board at colleges and universities served by an Army ROTC program.

Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment.

Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition. Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the Army. At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.

Those who succeed in the Army ROTC program are students who excel and want something more out of the college experience. Generally, these students are scholars who keep their grades up, athletes who are physically strong and leaders who have a great desire to learn.


Congratulations to Army ROTC Minuteman Scholarship Recipients

Nurse Program

If you’re considering an undergraduate nursing degree, enrolling in Army ROTC can enhance your leadership skills and critical thinking abilities while providing financial support to help make your professional goals a reality. Being a nurse in the Army provides you with benefits not found in the civilian world. As an Army nurse and officer, you will have the respect of your peers and coworkers, as well as opportunities to train and serve in a variety of specialties.

Your Commitment

  • Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course must agree to complete a period of service with the Army.
  • You can serve full time in the Army or those who qualify may choose to serve part time as a member of the Army National Guard or Army Reserve while pursuing a civilian career.
  • It’s an experience that you can’t get anywhere else, and your leadership skills will be challenged every day. 
  • Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC Scholarship.
