University of Bridgeport participates in the US Army’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). ROTC is a college program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States to prepare young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military.

Each year, the University of Bridgeport signs a Memorandum of Agreement to participate in the US Army’s Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program. US Army Representative Ross Alexander explains that ROTC is a university-based officer-training program that provides instruction and training for students desiring a military career.

Army ROTC scholarships consist of:

  • Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
  • Full-tuition scholarships
  • The option for room and board in place of tuition, if you should qualify
  • Additional allowances for books and fees

Army ROTC scholarships are awarded in two different ways: Students can compete nationally for a scholarship during their senior year of high school or they can join ROTC once they get to college and compete for a scholarship at the campus level.
