On Wright State's campus, both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force have ROTC programs. Each offers competitive, merit-based scholarships to ROTC students, often covering full tuition for college in exchange for extended periods of active military service. Graduates of the program enter the active-duty phase of their commitments as officers in their respective military branches.

Wright State is proud to partner with the U.S. Armed Forces as they train our leaders of tomorrow.
