ROTC Scholarship Applications Now Available
ROTC cadets looking to get a little bit of extra spending money or those who need help covering the costs of tuition are encouraged to apply for the first-ever AmmoMan.com ROTC Scholarships. Applications are open now for a pair of ROTC-exclusive, $500 scholarships for cadets enrolled at accredited 4-year colleges and universities. Two scholarships will be awarded in June to a pair of cadets who demonstrate excellence in the classroom and outstanding leadership skills within their cadre.
"We wanted to do something that would help bring attention to the young men and women who are dedicating a portion of their college years to helping serve their country as well as their local college campus," Eric Schepps of AmmoMan.com said. "We realize a lot of these men and women will go on to serve their country through the military and that commitment to serve as well as their commitment to personal development is something we appreciate. It’s worth encouraging that sort of behavior."
These ROTC Scholarships are open to cadets serving in any branch of ROTC so long as they maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average, or a B-average in their university’s respective grading system. However, the winning applicants will be more than just sharp in the classroom; a letter must accompany eligible applications from cadre leadership describing the cadet's leadership abilities.
"Many cadets enjoy the benefits of paid tuition if they commit to serve active duty military for four years after graduation but we realize that there are a lot more expenses and opportunities available to college-aged students than just inside the classroom. Further, there are a number of students who don't receive full tuition and are active leaders among their ROTC peers. It is our hope to help these students get the most from their time in college and recognize their dedication."
