Scholarships

College isn’t getting any less expensive, and everyone is looking for a way to lighten the load. If you have what it takes, Texas A&M International University Army ROTC can help you take the pain out of financing your college education. With your scholarship comes training with ROTC, and some of the most exciting and rewarding experiences possible in college. This is in addition to leadership training that is valued the world over.

Plus, once you’ve graduated, you will become an officer in the United States Army, either as full time as active duty or part time as a member of the Army Reserve or National Guard. No other scholarship can give you a leadership position in such an internationally recognized organization.

Eligibility:

  • Interested? Then be a U.S. citizen
  • Be at least 17 years old before the scholarship is effective
  • Participate in leadership, extracurricular and athletic activities. (Students with part-time jobs may be given substitute credit)
  • Be under 27 years old on June 30 of the year you expect to graduate and receive your officer's commission. (An age extension of up to four years may be granted to veterans who qualify)
  • Be a high school graduate or have equivalent credit
  • Pursue an Army approved academic major
  • Agree to accept a commission as an officer in the Army
  • Meet required physical standards.

Army ROTC Scholarships

Each Army ROTC scholarship is valued up to $17,000 a year, plus a $2,500 - $4,000 yearly stipend, as well as $600 a year for books and school supplies.

Three and Four Year Scholarship: This is a competitive scholarship awarded to incoming and current freshmen who meet the above qualifications, as well as having good high school grades (approx. 3.5 GPA on 4.0 scale) and have taken the SAT or ACT (must have a minimum 920 SAT or composite 19 ACT). This test can be taken no later than November of the academic year you apply.

Two Year Scholarship: Are you a sophomore who has just heard about ROTC and is interested in getting in on the action? Or are you a veteran who is interested in returning to the force as an officer? The Two Year Scholarship is for you. You are eligible if you are going to be a junior with two full years remaining at UCLA and have at least a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale in your previous college work. As a sophomore, you would attend the Leader's Training Course (LTC), a five-week program at Ft. Knox, KY in the summer between your sophomore and junior years. The purpose of the Leader's Training Course is to provide instruction in the basic leadership and technical skills that will prepare you for your junior and senior years of ROTC. As a veteran, your previous Army service qualifies you to enter without the first two years.

Fully Funded Medical: If you want to go to medical right after graduation, or after you’re in the Army, there are a number of programs which will pay for your graduate degree. Contact us for more information!


Texas National Guard Tuition Assistance

Separate from the ROTC program, the Texas National Guard, you may be able to receive up to 100 percent of tuition assistance. To join the National Guard, you will have to attend Basic Training, and serve with an Army National Guard unit for one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer while going to school. Naturally, you get paid for attending this training as well.
