Students apply for scholarships beginning in February of their junior year of High School. They can apply for scholarships through the summer before their junior year of college (basic camp). The time in which a student applies partially determines which kind of scholarship a student may win.
In addition to the tuition money, scholarship winners receive $600 per year for books, and they receive $300 per month as Freshmen, $350 as Sophomores, $450 as Juniors and $500 as Seniors for personal use. More information about our 4-year scholarship for high school students is also available.
High School students apply for 4-year and 3-year advanced designee scholarships between the second semester of their junior year and November 15 of their senior year. Scholarships are worth full tuition, plus books and fees each year.
College freshmen and sophomores can apply for 4, 3- and 2-year, on campus, scholarships. Benefits are the same as for high school scholarship winners. Please contact us for a scholarship application. Benefits begin for winners of the on-campus scholarships the following semester. Participation in ROTC prior to receiving a scholarship enhances a student's chances of winning a scholarship for the next year.
Any college student with at least two remaining years or considering a Masters degree has the opportunity to compete for a scholarship at the Leadership Training Course (LTC).
