Four year winners will be expected to come to college physically and mentally prepared. Army ROTC is a challenging, rewarding extra effort for any college student. Four-year scholarships are given to only the best in high school.

The Patriot Battalion sets a higher standard for each and every student; getting a four year Army ROTC scholarship is an achievement that you will be proud of for the rest of your life. Four year scholarship recipients will be commissioned as 2nd Lieutenants in the active force or in the National Guard or Reserves.
How Winners are Chosen
Selection of winners is based on academic record, SAT or ACT test results, school officials' evaluations and/or recommendations, extracurricular, leadership, and athletic activities. A personal interview and a physical aptitude exam are also taken into consideration. The awarding of an Army ROTC scholarship is merit-based.
As a winner of a four-year scholarship, you are required to take ROTC class(es) each year. The time commitment ranges from one to four hours/week depending on the student's academic year. Upon graduation, you have an obligation to accept a commission and serve full time in the Active Army for four years, and an additional 4 years in the ready reserves.
ROTC'S Commitment to You
In addition to helping you meet the escalating cost of going to college, our program provides an experience that successful careers are built on. You'll be given personal, scholastic and professional training no other college course offers. You'll learn how to take charge, how to perform under pressure, and how to lead and inspire others. You'll graduate with the kind of leadership and management skills that employers value. That makes ROTC a step in a very smart direction.
When to Apply
By going to www.armyrotc.com you can and should apply on line during the summer before or fall of your senior year. The deadline is January 10th of your senior year of high school, and you will usually have an additional month to complete your application.

The secret to success it to establish and maintain a dialogue with the recruiting officer at each ROTC battalion you are interested in.
