The Army ROTC Scholarship is a three- or four-year full-tuition scholarship awarded annually to a couple of thousand students across the country who show interest in becoming an officer in the U.S. Army. The successful candidate will demonstrate outstanding academic performance, athletic ability, leadership potential and a desire to be a physically fit, critical thinking problem solver.
In addition, the scholarship pays the student $600 per semester for books and a $420 per month stipend. At Dickinson, this scholarship also comes with an additional $5,000 per semester toward room and board. Learn More
Applicants should apply for the scholarship at the end of their junior year of high school. The application opens on June 7 each summer, and there are three boards that meet to offer scholarships in Oct./Jan./March of the student’s senior year.
