Scholarships and stipends in Army ROTC help you focus on what's important. Namely, getting that college degree — not how you'll pay for it. Scholarships are awarded based on a student's merit and grades, not financial need.
Carroll ROTC scholarships consist of:
Army ROTC scholarships also provide monthly living allowances for each school year. You can earn certain amounts depending on your level in the Army ROTC curriculum:
Contracted students can also earn an additional $1,000 a month by participating in the Simultaneous Membership Program through the Montana Army National Guard or U.S. Army Reserve.
For High School students, apply through the on-line Financial Aid 4-year Scholarship application. All other applications for 2 to 3.5 year scholarships, contact CPT Thompson for application materials.
Veterans who are eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill may qualify for the Yellow Ribbon program. Under this program, Carroll will contribute up to 50% of the remaining tuition after GI Bill benefits. For more information contact Brandi Keely, VA coordinator for Carroll.
The Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) allows enlisted National Guard and Reserve soldiers to continue to serve and drill while enrolled in ROTC. In addition to the ROTC stipends and book allowance, SMP Cadets will receive their drill pay at an E-5 rate. Educational assistance is available in the form of Tuition Assistance and the GI BIll.
2 and 3 year GRFD/SMP scholarships may be available. Contact CPT Thompson for more information.
