National and Merit-Based Scholarships and Incentives

Army ROTC and Wright State University offer a variety of merit-based scholarships and incentives for Army ROTC cadets. 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.

Scholarships consist of:

  • Two, three, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
  • Up to full-tuition scholarships
  • The option for room and board in place of tuition, if you should qualify
  • Additional allowances for books and fees

Typical scholarships and incentives pay for:

  • Tuition and all required fees
  • $1200 per year for books (cadets receive $600 per semester except nursing cadets receive full amount in the fall semester)
  • A monthly tax-free stipend of $420.00 for freshman through seniors

Campus-Based Scholarships

For those who may not have received a national scholarship and meet the requirements, campus-based scholarships are available. After enrolling in the MIL 1010 or MIL 1020 class and attending Physical Training regularly, the Professor of Military Science may consider you for a campus-based scholarship. Campus-based scholarships can pay full or partial tuition until a national scholarship is available.

Campus-Based Housing Scholarship

A housing scholarship is available for contracted cadets and prospects alike who are living on campus at Wright State. This scholarship can be utilized on top of other existing scholarships. This scholarship applies 50% the cost of a Woods community double, to the price of any of the housing communities.
