Scholarships and Financial Aid

The Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps offers merit based scholarships to WSU students who are eligible and desire to serve in the US Army as a commissioned officer. There are many different avenues to applying for and receiving financial assistance depending on where you are in your academic journey.

The ROTC Scholarship covers either tuition and fees or room and board. Room and board option pays out $10,000 per year tax free. There are other benefits such as:

  • $1200 annual book stipend
  • $420 monthly allowance during the school year (up to 10 months per year)

Through Army ROTC you can also enlist into either the Army Reserve or the Washington Army National Guard while simultaneously becoming a cadet and working towards commissioning as an officer. We call this the Simultaneous Membership Program or SMP for short. You enlist and go to basic training and often advance training to become trained and qualified at a specific military job.

Cadets not wishing to take either the scholarship or join the Simultaneous Membership Program can still contract as a cadet. Even without accepting a scholarship, contracted cadets still receive the monthly $420 per month stipend.
