ADDITIONAL PAPERWORK YOU WILL NEED TO QUALIFY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
To earn a scholarship you must be a U.S. Citizen, in good health, have good grades and test scores. You must not have a criminal record or be addicted to drugs. The Army realizes that not everybody is perfect and sometimes people make poor choices. As with most anything in the Army, there are some items that are waiver-able and others that are not. We will assist you in preparing a waiver packet for certain indiscretions that the regulations permit us to request waivers on.
Below is the list of requirements for you to do. (We just need copies for 2-6.)
1. Department of Defense Medical Review Board Physical (DODMERB) This is conducted by contracted Physicians and an Optometrists . We will set you up in our system but you will need to schedule and complete your appointments. Please call us about this as soon as possible because we will need to get the zip code of your nearest Army medical provider in your area to avoid you having to come to Cincinnati for your appointments.
2. Birth certificate
3. Social Security Card
4. High school or college transcripts. You must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
5. Standardized Test Scores (ACT or SAT), You must have a minimum score of 19 on the ACT or 925 on the SAT. This is not waiver-able. (Not required if you have a established a college GPA.)
6. Shot Records. One note, the information we will need on your shot records is proof of MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) and Chickenpox vaccinations (Varicella). If you have had Chickenpox and did not have to get the vaccination, we will need proof in Chickenpox in one of three ways:
a. your doctor has annotated that you Chickenpox on your shot record OR
b. we will need a copy of the medical record where your doctor diagnosed you with
chicken pox OR
c. you will need to get the chickenpox antibodies test at your own expense and provide us with the results (it usually costs about $75)
Once we have this documentation we will have you fill out and return to us a couple of forms: Access to Student Records, the Medical Privacy Act Statement, a Location of your Dental Records Form. We can worry about this over the next couple of weeks. You will have to complete an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) after you graduate from H.S. which we will set up with an ROTC unit near you if you can't come to Xavier. You will also need to conduct and interview for the Professor of Military Science to further judge your character, determination and motivation to become an Army officer.
Once we have qualified you, your name will be placed on an order of merit list with the other applicants based on your qualifications. Scholarships will be awarded based on merit and available funds for the given year. The better qualified, the higher on the list your name will be, the better chance you have to earn a scholarship.
This is the beginning of the process. Once qualified, you will begin your training to earn your commission. Grades, physical fitness scores, performance, and character will determine if you meet your goal.
Good luck to you. If at any time you have any questions about the process, don?t hesitate to call either Major Pete Gray at (513) 745- 1062 or Major Steve Harmon at (513) 745-1066, or e-mail us at email@example.com.
