Once an Officer in the United States Army, you become a leader to many people. As an officer, you are looked at as a motivator, strategist and even a counselor to those you command in many different locations or situations.
Army ROTC is flexible in that it allows cadets to live their daily lives including full time college and maintain their schedules while learning advanced skills in the classroom. Students who participate in the ROTC Basic Course (Freshman/Sophomore courses) can learn the basic military skills without any commitment to join. Those students who receive a high school/college scholarship or enter in the Army ROTC Advanced Course (Junior/Senior courses) must sign up for duty in the United States Army; ie Active Duty or National Guard/Reserve.
After completing the ROTC program, graduates are commissioned as Second Lieutenants and receive more specialized training called Basic Officer Leaders Course (BOLC) . There are also additional training programs as well as advanced educational opportunities that each officer can look into.

Army ROTC scholarships come in several variations depending on the particular ROTC cadet. Graduating high school seniors can apply for a full four-year ROTC scholarship. However, students already enrolled in college can apply for a three-year or even a two-year ROTC scholarship.
The Army ROTC scholarship entitles its recipients to full-tuition and fees paid directly to UND, as well as a book and supplies allowance of $600/semester and a monthly stipend of $420 to cover the cadet’s living expenses. Typically, cadets choose Room/Board, but it is up to the cadet.
The only requirements to maintain the Army ROTC scholarship are participation in ROTC activities (ie. attending class, lab, PT and Field Training Exercises), maintaining physical fitness standards, and being enrolled as a full-time student at the college of attendance.
The scholarships granted by Army ROTC are a great way for students to achieve academic success without dealing with much of the stress that college life entails. Scholarship cadets are able to attend college for little or no cost and at the same time benefit from the training and experience that ROTC programs provide.
