Army ROTC Program Scholarships

The University of Washington’s ROTC program is now accepting applications for seniors interested in 4-year full tuition scholarships. We would love to offer your students the opportunity to be a part of the University of Washington’s deep and rich history. The Army ROTC is a program that allows you to attend college and earn a degree while simultaneously completing requirements to commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Army. ROTC is not an alternative to getting a college degree nor is it something students do in lieu of college.

Students who are interested in applying for the ROTC scholarship or would like to learn more about the program or UW please contact us at . Visit our Army ROTC Scholarship page to apply.
