Scholarship & Contracting
If you're a High School student in the Junior or Senior year and you are interested in learning about the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps Scholarship, then visit goarmy.com/rotc/ for more information.
If you are full time college student, contact the Norwich Army ROTC Department for more information about the eligibility of Army ROTC on campus scholarships. There are many financial incentives that are awarded to eligible Cadets, and there also are opportunities to contract without a scholarship as well. If you are interested in learning more about contracting then contact the Army ROTC Department.
For eligible and qualified Cadets the first hurdle is to contract. By signing an Army ROTC contract you will demonstrate your commitment to learning Army Officership and to achieving academic excellence, as well as dedicating yourself to attaining the highest level of physical fitness possible. Cadets who receive a scholarship can contract as early as the first semester of the freshman year.
Contracting Without Scholarships
For non-scholarship Cadets there are ways to contract as early as the sophomore year. For more details please contact the Army ROTC Department. The majority of Army ROTC Cadets do not have scholarships, and upon meeting eligibility criteria non-scholarship Cadets can sign a contract. All interested students can contact the Army ROTC Department to determine the eligibility criteria and to understand the incentives available.
