Army Reserve Enlisted Soldier
If you are an enlisted Soldier in the US Army Reserves and you’re interested in participating in ROTC, contact the Recruiting Operations Officer to set-up an interview. Army Reserve Soldiers have two options in ROTC; they can compete for a two year Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty (GRFD) scholarship or request a non-scholarship option. Army Reserve Cadets are also required to participate in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) once contracted with ROTC. Cadets in the SMP receive the following perks:
- E-5 Drill pay
- Non-Deployable Status
- Drill as a Cadet in your unit, shadow current platoon leaders
Cadets who earn a GRFD scholarship can use their scholarship for either 100% of their tuition or for Room & Board (worth approximately $3400 per semester). The scholarship also pay $1200 per year for books ($600 per semester). Upon graduation and commissioning GRFD Cadets will serve in the Army Reserve.
Cadets who pursue the non-scholarship option are able to compete for active duty between their MS 3 and MS 4 year.
Army Reserve Soldiers may begin the application process by completing this webform to schedule a meeting with the Recruiting Operations Officer.
