How can I get a ROTC scholarship?

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is a college program offered at more than 1,000 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares students to become officers in the Military. 

ROTC students commit to serve in the Military after graduation (generally four years of Active Duty) in exchange for a partially or fully paid college education.

The Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force each offer their own ROTC program. The Coast Guard doesn’t offer ROTC, but they do have a Student Reserve program.
