Benefits That Last a Lifetime
Army ROTC is one of the nation's top leadership programs, with a wide range of benefits. Through Army ROTC you can:
- Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC Scholarship
- Gain experience you can't find anywhere else
- Gain the respect of your peers and future employers
- Train to become a leader and manager
In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader—not just a person who gives orders but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC has two phases: Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET) and Cadet Leaders Course (CLC).
Scholarships / Financial
Whether you're a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. Scholarships are awarded based on a student's merit and grades, not financial need. Many students are attracted to ROTC programs by generous tuition benefits. Cadets, as ROTC students are known, can win scholarships for two, three or four years from the Army ROTC program. The scholarships not only cover tuition and fees, but also provides a stipend. Army ROTC Scholarships are a great way for students to achieve academic success without dealing with much of the streess that college life entails. Scholarship cadets are able to attend college for little or no cost and at the same time benefit from the training and experience that ARMY ROTC provides.
