The mission of the Army ROTC program is to provide instruction to college students preparing them for future leadership positions, both civilian and military, and to commission second lieutenants for the United States Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve.

ROTC Scholarship Program

The Army ROTC Scholarship Program is designed to offer financial assistance to outstanding young men and women in the ROTC program who are interested in commissioned service in the Army. There are three types of scholarships: four-year, three-year and two-year. Each scholarship provides tuition, textbooks and laboratory fees in addition to paying a $350 subsistence allowance per month for the period that the scholarship is in effect for freshmen increasing to $500 per month for seniors.

Four-year scholarships are available to high school seniors. Four-year scholarship applications must be mailed prior to January 12, in the student's senior year of high school. Information and application packets for the four-year scholarship may be obtained from the high school counselor, by going online at www.armyrotc.com, by e-mailing to armyrotc@usm.edu, or by writing to

Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

Qualified Army National Guard and Army Reserve members can enter the advanced course and remain in their units while combining and enhancing their pay and tuition benefits and earning their commission as a second lieutenant. Participants in the program are eligible for both state and federal tuition assistance applied directly to tuition costs.
