High school juniors who are rising seniors may apply for the scholarship as early as 1 Feb of their junior year after taking the SAT or ACT. There are 4-year and 3-year advance designee scholarships worth $50,000 over four years or $38,000 over three years.
The Army ROTC scholarship pays your tuition and fees or room and meals; a monthly stipend ($300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors, and $500 for seniors); and $1,200 per year for books. They're awarded on merit: academic achievement, extracurricular activities, personal interviews, and physical fitness. You agree to serve four years in the Regular Army as an officer after graduating from North Georgia.
Note: For Georgia residents who are eligible for the HOPE Scholarship, the Army ROTC Scholarship is used to pay for room and meals. Georgia residents on the ROTC scholarship will receive up to $1,500 in grants from the State of Georgia at the end of each semester.
