book allowance. Army scholarship winners also receive a tax-free
subsistence allowance which increases as they progress through Military

The Scholarship does not pay flight fees.
It is important that
you contact the Army Professor of Military Science (PMS) early on in the
application process at the universities you have an interest in to find
out the number and types of scholarships that are available at that
school. The number of scholarships at individual universities are
limited based on each school's tuition cost (resident and nonresident).
The allocations allow Army ROTC to send tomorrow's Army officers to more
than 272 schools across the nation. After telephonic interviews are
conducted, the individual universities hold selection boards and the PMS
will select the individuals to be offered a scholarship to their
school. Any offer of a scholarship is tied to the name of the university
listed on your notification letter and cannot be used at another
university. Apply for the National Scholarship at: https://www.goarmy.com/accounts/register/user_agreement.jsp?ssl=true
