High School Students



 

We are looking for motivated, well-rounded individuals to become the future warrior-leaders of the United States Army. We target & reward the “Scholar – Athlete – Leader” (SAL).

 

Scholarship Overview

1. Scholarship allocations vary by year and type of scholarship.
 
2. The scholarship process typically includes three rounds of evaluation. To make yourself the most competitive, complete your application for both the University (apply to PBA here) and the Army ROTC scholarship as soon as possible.
 
3. We award scholarships based on an internally created order of merit list (OML). The OML gives us a tool to evaluate scholarship candidates by ranking individuals based on the following: SAL criteria or Whole Person Score (WPS), interview, and Scholarship Board.
 

What you receive if selected!

  • 100% of your Tuition and Fees OR Room and Board
  • Funds for books – $1,200 annually
  • Stipend of $420 monthly to supplement incidentals 

High school seniors – If you are a high school senior, your first step is to apply (and be accepted) to Palm Beach Atlantic University: https://www.pba.edu/admissions/index.html 
 
If you are interested in an Army ROTC 4-year scholarship you can apply online: http://www.goarmy.com/rotc/high_school_students.jsp
 
The application requires you to provide follow-up documentation and complete a physical (at no cost to you) at a later date.  The deadline for Army ROTC scholarships for each school year (SY) is December 1st of the year prior to entry; i.e. – If you want a scholarship for fall, you must have your application in by December 1st.  You can start applying online in mid-July (or soon-thereafter).  The earlier you complete the application process, the better.
 
High school juniors – If you are a high school junior inquiring about our program, please check out our website for additional information and apply for an Army ROTC scholarship in the summer between your junior and senior year, no later than December 1st of your senior year in high school.  To make yourself more competitive and increase your chances of receiving a scholarship, enhance your SAL resume as much as possible before you apply for the scholarship (i.e. join athletic and academic clubs, student government, and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher to be competitive).
