There will be scholarships available for students once you arrive on campus. These scholarships will be very competitive.  We have no formal application process prior to you enrolling in ROTC.  Below is what must happen for your to compete for an "on-campus" scholarship:

  1. Enroll in Army ROTC, MILS 101 Freshman Fall, 103 Freshman Spring, 201 Sophomore Fall, 203 Sophomore Spring.

  2. Stop in and visit our Recruiting Operations Officer to begin the enrollment paperwork.  

  3. Bring an original birth certificate and your original Social Security Card to the Xavier Army ROTC office (you will get those back).

  4. Complete an accurate CC Form 104-R, this is your schedule of classes required from the day you register in ROTC until you graduate.  It is completed with you and your Academic Advisor and then reviewed by us.

Campus based scholarships are very limited.  All Cadets enrolled in ROTC at Xavier and express a desire to obtain a commission will be placed on an Order of Merit List (OML) with all other cadets that are interested in a campus based scholarship for that specific year group.  As scholarship opportunities are made available to us we make offers to the number one Cadet on the OML. If you are awarded a campus based scholarship these are the benefits you may expect.

  • Tuition and all required fees
  • $1200 per year for books (paid in $600 installations per semester)
  • A monthly tax-free tiered stipend between $300.00 for Freshman to $500 for Seniors
  • Room and board incentives may be available based on which school you attend

How do I qualify for an Army ROTC scholarship? We are interested in students with Scholar, Athlete, and Leader attributes or what we call "SAL's." We are looking for people that can lead that are self-disciplined and are good followers.  We need people that can live in the field environment, those that can walk up to the obstacle course and tell their platoons "I'll go first and and show you how it's done."  You must be medically qualified, have high morals and have high ethical standards, etc. call the ROTC office at (513) 745-1060 to start you future.
