Army ROTC Scholarships at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University are worth $29,000 annually and cover college tuition and educational fees and $1,200 per year for books. In addition, contracted cadets (scholarship and non-scholarship) receive a monthly subsistence allowance. The monthly subsistence allowance is $300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors, and $500 for seniors. Scholarships do not pay flight fees.
If you are an incoming freshman you may qualify for a full-tuition scholarship to attend Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach.
High school seniors are encouraged to apply for the Army ROTC Four-Year Scholarship through the national selection process. If a high school senior is awarded a four-year or three-year Advanced Designee Scholarship while still in high school, Embry-Riddle may provide you "assurance" money, to include scholarships, need-based grants, and awards that will activate when the scholarship goes into effect. University funding, in combination with funding from ROTC, cannot exceed the cost of education. This "assurance" is offered at the discretion of the university financial aid department, not Army ROTC.
On-campus scholarships are awarded after a student has enrolled in Army ROTC, applied for and qualified for the scholarship. Campus-based scholarships pay for tuition and fees (it does not pay for flight fees), a monthly stipend for 10 months, and a book allowance each semester.
If you missed the scholarship opportunity in high school, there are ROTC scholarship opportunities available on campus. Two- and three-year scholarships are awarded based strictly on merit, to the most outstanding students who apply.

Applicants must meet all eligibility criteria to receive scholarship consideration. Unfortunately, all applicants can not be selected as finalists. Those applicants advancing to further scholarship consideration after initial screening are scheduled for a personal interview and a medical examination.
The interview is conducted by an Army officer who will ask you questions and will answer any questions you have about Army ROTC and the pursuit of an Army commission. Your information will be passed to the Professors of Military Science (PMS) at the schools you listed on your application. Those PMSs will contact you. You will be interviewed over the phone or in person, depending on the distance involved. You must pay any cost for transportation, food and lodging for the interview.
Individuals selected for an interview will be contacted and scheduled for a medical examination by the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DODMERB). You are responsible for your own transportation, food, and lodging related to this examination. Results of the medical examination will be furnished directly to you by DODMERB.
If you are unable to report for the examination as scheduled, you must notify DODMERB immediately. You will be rescheduled. Current height and weight requirements for a four-year scholarship and subsequent commissioning must be met.
All winners must be medically qualified in order to contract and receive scholarship benefits.
Individuals competing for an Army ROTC scholarship must pass the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) prior to receiving a scholarship OFFER. The APFT will be administered during your interview visit.
