ROTC Scholarships

ROTC scholarships are not based on your financial situation. They are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades.

Students who want to compete for Army ROTC or Air Force ROTC scholarships must: be a full-time college student (at least 12 credits), have a GPA of at least 2.50, have a high school diploma or equivalent, and pass the physical fitness test.

All contracted ROTC students receive a housing stipend, regardless of whether they receive an ROTC scholarship.

Why ROTC at The College of Saint Rose?

Saint Rose, which has been named a top Military Friendly School by Victory Media for 10 consecutive years and counting, ranked No. 1 among “Gold Standard” private colleges for the fourth year in a row. Our commitment to the military goes back to 1946, when our campus, which was a women’s college then, opened its doors to G.I.s returning from World War II so they could take night courses, easing their transition to civilian life.

Saint Rose is home to a Veteran Center where military-influenced students can gather to study, socialize, and find resources. Veterans who choose to can live together in our dedicated Veteran Residence. We have two veterans on staff at our Veteran Center, one of whom is an ROTC graduate. And ROTC students at Saint Rose are happy to talk to potential cadets about the benefits of the program.
