Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

With SMP, you participate in both the Guard and your college's ROTC program at the same time. During this two-year course, you'll be paired with and mentored by a unit officer, and get paid to drill once a month with your Guard unit. In addition, check out these benefits:

  • Qualify for up to 100 percent tuition with the Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty (GRFD) scholarship.
  • Earn a cash bonus, depending on your Military Occupational Specialty (MOS).
  • Receive a monthly allowance, based on your grade level.
  • Get more money every month through the Montgomery GI Bill and Guard Kicker.


Best of all, upon graduation you'll receive your commission as a second lieutenant, and serve in either the National Guard or the Active Army. SMP is your key to success now and after graduation. Your recruiter has all the details.
