The Reserves Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is a college program offered to train students to become commissioned officers in the United States Armed Forces. This curriculum is pursued alongside traditional college courses, providing students with the unique opportunity to gain leadership training that will lead to success in any career field. Non-scholarship students may participate in the first two years of ROTC without commitment to military service.
ROTC scholarships are available on a competitive basis to qualified applicants. High school seniors may apply for four-year scholarships in conjunction with their application to Tufts University. Scholarships cover full tuition and all mandatory fees, plus $1,200 for books and supplies each year, and a tax-free stipend ranging from $300 to $500 per month. The scholarship is flexible and can be used for either tuition and mandatory fees, or for room and board.
