2018 Minuteman Scholarship
The Army Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) Minuteman Scholarship was introduced in 2015 to enhance the Army National Guard’s ability to recruit highly qualified cadets. All qualified applicants for ROTC scholarships may apply for consideration for the Minuteman Scholarship.
The Minuteman Scholarship covers full tuition and fees (uncapped) at any college or university served by an Army Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) program, OR can be used toward room and board, capped at $10,000 per year.
Scholarship recipients also receive a yearly book allowance of $1,200 and a monthly stipend from $300 to $500 while attending school, depending on their year in the ROTC program. Minuteman Scholarship recipients must serve in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP), in which they participate in their COARNG unit’s monthly drills and a 14-day annual training for which they are paid as an E-5. After graduation and commissioning, Minuteman Scholarship recipients are guaranteed placement in the COARNG upon commissioning and incur an 8 year service obligation.
