Military Scholarships

More than 1.3 million Americans have made the choice to serve their country. The brave men and women who voluntarily invest their time in the United States Military are some of the well-respected citizens of the country. Choosing to enter the military should not forfeit your dreams of receiving a college education. Whether you are a member of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or Navy there are a number of college scholarships and grants available for service members, veterans and their families.

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) offers a variety of scholarships – from full-tuition to additional funding for room and board to allowances for books and fees – that are awarded based on merit and not financial need. Both the Army and the Navy have ROTC programs that collaborate with a number of colleges across the country. And if you are a member of the Illinois National Guard, you may be eligible to receive the Illinois National Guard (ING) Grant that awards 2000 undergraduate and graduate students annually.
