It’s time for your seniors to apply for the national Army ROTC scholarship! The online application deadline is January 10, 2012, for your current seniors. Current juniors will be able to begin the application near the end of the spring semester.
I have attached some information for you and your students on the application process, as well as tips for creating a competitive application. This year only 3,000 awards will be made nationwide (1,000 four-year scholarships and 2,000 three-year awards). Grades, test scores, and proven athletic and leadership ability are essential, as well as solid performance on a presidential fitness test (which can be administered by your PE coaches), and especially important this year is the student’s face-to-face interview with a Professor of Military Science. MAJ David Rozelle here at CU-Boulder would welcome the opportunity to meet with your students, and I am also offering pre-interviews over the phone or during campus visits to assist your students in doing their very best.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and to pass my contact information along to any students, parents, faculty, or staff who may be interested in the Army ROTC scholarship program. I would also be happy to visit your schools if you have some interested students, or if you’d just like me to get the word out to them about our program and opportunities for college scholarships with guaranteed Army officer careers (full-time on active duty or part-time in the National Guard or Army Reserve) upon college graduation.
Our Facebook site (link below) is also very popular with our prospective students. There they can view pictures and videos of our recent events and communicate with our cadets and their families. We have posted our “Parent to Parent” video that allows moms and dad to hear what the families of our current cadets have to say about what our program has done for their children, and an Army Physical Fitness Test video to help the students prepare for the physical challenges of a military career.
I look forward to working with all of you this school year!
