  • National Guard Army ROTC Scholarships

    College/university students! You still have time to apply for an ROTC Scholarship with the Army National Guard. Here are some main points:[LIST][*]Three and two year awards available. Graduate students may apply for a two year award as well.[*]Recipients must serve as SMP cadets with a local National Guard unit while on scholarship.[*]Scholarships pay full tuition (no limit) to any accredited college/university in America.[*]You can use Federal Tuition Assistance to pay tuition at lower cost schools, and use the ROTC scholarship to pay room & board on campus.[*]After graduation, the recipient serves eight years drilling one weekend per month and two weeks in the summer with a National Guard unit (any state). [/LIST]
    How to apply?[LIST=1][*]Speak with your ROTC enrollment officer at your campus. See [url]http://www.goarmy.com/rotc/find_schools.jsp[/url] for a list of schools with ROTC programs.[*][B]Apply through your ROTC program[/B] to your state's Army National Guard Officer Strength Manager. [/LIST]
    Because the funding for this program is so high, all qualified applicants have received an award for at least the past three years.

    If interested, [U]don't contact me unless you attend college in Virginia[/U]! You need to work through your ROTC program to apply, because if you don't meet ROTC standards, you can't get an award.

      The best person to speak with is the ROTC Enrollment Officer. Unless ROTC approves of you, you have no chance at this scholarship, so start with the ROTC program. In parallel, speak with your state's Officer Strength Manager -- MAJ Carmen Tucker, 609-562-0719, [email]carmen.tucker@us.army.mil[/email]. Tell her that I sent you.

          The Student Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) is an enlistment incentive. To get it, you would need to complete Basic Training and AIT, then serve in that capacity as an enlisted Soldier. Thus, SLRP is effectively not available to you. Reference: SRIP 06-06, para 5e & 7k.

            my opinion

            i think that you should have some combat experience before you become a c.o. because you will have more respect from troops like us who have just joined. nobody wants to have to take orders from someone who has been in as many battles as they have, and have just completed basic training. I am an e-1 and i just joined and i was thinking the same thing "lets go to school and become an officer in 4 years" 2nd lt. thats kind of like cheating if you ask me. but on the other hand. some were meant for grunt warfare, and some were meant to command those in the trenches.

            ps. ROTC does seem like it would be a blast though

                  This doesn't relate to ROTC per say, but if I had to drill 8 years, do I have to do all of those 8 years with the same unit? For example, if I had to relocated because of my primary career, could I choose to drill in a different state?

                    Your eight year drilling obligation is to the Guard as a whole, not to a particular unit or even a particular state. You can fulfill your commitment while changing units, states, or even branches.
