Ohio University Army ROTC offers a variety of scholarship opportunities. Three- and four-year nationally competitive Cadet Command Scholarships are available for incoming freshmen. The deadline for these scholarships is in early January of the high school senior year. You can create an account and start your U.S. Army Cadet Command Scholarship application on the Army ROTC webpage.
For current college students, there are very limited and competitive availabilities for two- and three-year campus based scholarships. Army ROTC scholarships cover tuition, $1200 in books per year, and a monthly tax-free stipend of $300 to $500, depending on academic year. In addition, Ohio University also provides room grants of $5427 per year to nationally competitive scholarship recipients and both room and board to the most competitive Cadets.
The Ohio Army National Guard offers 100 percent tuition assistance and the U.S. Army Reserve offers $3500/year and full college loan repayment. Both the National Guard and Reserve offer the opportunity for service members to participate in OU’s ROTC Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) in order to additionally qualify for the $300 to $500 monthly tax-free cadet stipend. There’s a scholarship plan for every type of student. Call us to find out what option would work best for you.
