The training and salary you get as a Soldier are only some of the ways the Army ROTC strengthens you for tomorrow. The Army also offers money for education, comprehensive health care, generous vacation time, family services and support groups, special pay for special duties, and cash allowances to cover the cost of living.
Army ROTC is one of the Nation’s top leadership programs with many joining benefits.
Through Army ROTC you can:
• Get help with your college tuition and fees 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: Basic Course and Advanced Course.
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.
