Scholarship Information


Scholarship Opportunities

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.

 

Army ROTC scholarships are valuable in many ways: Two, three, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree. Scholarship amounts vary. Additional allowances pay for books and fees. Gardner-Webb students awarded a scholarship have their Room and Board paid for by the University.
