Currently in College

If you are currently in college and would like to explore Army ROTC, there are several scholarship options available.  Through classes and field training, Army ROTC provides you with the tools to become an Army Officer without interfering with your other classes. ROTC also provides you with discipline and money for tuition while enhancing your college experience.

College freshmen and sophomores can apply for a Two or Three-year Army ROTC Scholarship at DePaul University. These scholarships pay up to $20,000 a year for college tuition and education fees or room and board, whichever is chosen by the student. An additional scholarship benefit is an annual $1,200 book allowance. Army scholarship winners also receive a tax-free subsistence allowance, which increases as they progress through Military Science for up to 10 months for each year the scholarship is in effect.

If you have at least two or more years remaining toward your undergraduate degree but not enough time to complete the Basic Course, you can enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course by completing the Leader's Training Course held at Fort Knox, Kentucky, during the summer.​
