Army ROTC Scholarships

There are a number of scholarship opportunities available through Army ROTC. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades. At Pittsburg State University, scholarships pay for book, tuition and fees. All cadets, regardless of whether they are on Federal or Kansas National Guard scholarships are non deployable. That means that you cannot be called to serve overseas while you are in college.

The online scholarship application can be found at:
