The Army’s top priority is the professional education of its soldiers, particularly its leaders. To this end, we offer full scholarships to those willing to serve the United States by becoming Army Officers. In order to train young people worthy to lead America's forces, these prestigious scholarships are offered based on academic and personal achievement, not financial aid.
Army ROTC scholarships consist of:
- Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
- Full-tuition and mandatory fees scholarships
- The option for room and board in place of tuition, if qualified
- Monthly stipend ($300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors, and $500 for seniors. The stipend is also available to contracted, non-scholarship Cadets enrolled in the Advanced Course.)
- $600 per semester for books.
There are two methods of earning an Army ROTC scholarship. The first is to apply for the 4-Year National Scholarship. The second is to apply for a campus-based scholarship. Students apply for the National Scholarship during their senior year of high school. Students can apply for the campus-based scholarship, which can be a two-four year scholarship based on how much time they have left to finish their degree, after enrolling at William and Mary.
Achieving a U.S. Army ROTC scholarship is an auspicious attainment. The Professor of Military Science makes the final selection for deserving scholarship-winners. To qualify for a scholarship, students must fulfill all the physical and academic requirements for ROTC enrollment.
For information on scholarships, contact Mr. Scott M. Fee, Associate Professor of Military Science/Scholarship and Retention Officer ([[smfee]], 757-221-3611).
Guaranteed Reserve Duty Forces (GRFD) Scholarship/Contract - Allows Cadets to decide to select Reserve/National Guard duty versus going Active Duty. Commitment is for 6 or 8 years, one weekend a month, and two weeks of annual training.
Enlisted military personnel wishing to become officers can also earn scholarships through the Green to Gold Program.
Veterans can use the G.I. Bill® at William and Mary.
