    My high school junior year is winding down. I've seen similiar posts in different academy forums, but none specific to ROTC scholarships.

    My goal is to get my scholarship applications completed before my senior year begins. However, what will I need from my school before summer vacation? Transcripts? School profile? Teacher recs? If so, how many of each?



    Thanks in advance:thumb:

    which service? For Army there are four things required to complete your file and be seen on the first board. Of those four things transcripts, and PFT are the only two that require your school to do anything. The first scholarship board probably won't meet until October, so you don't need to get everything done before senior year starts. The things you need to take care of over the Summer are interview and refine your school list. You can knock out the PFT with a coach or gym teacher now or in the fall.

    If you are talking about Army Scholarships-Go to the website: http://www.goarmy.com/rotc/high-scho...holarship.html to get started. Now is the time to get started...
    GUIDE TO THE ARMY ROTC SCHOLARSHIP PROCESS
    Students applying for an ARMY ROTC Scholarship, on line or by mailing in an
    application, must complete the following in order to be considered for a scholarship. All
    applicants must self report their high school Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA),
    college board scores (SAT/ACT), age and U.S. citizenship before they are sent a letter of
    instruction regarding accomplishing a mandatory interview. Once you receive an
    interview letter in the mail from Cadet Command, you will have the option to interview
    at a local university ARMY ROTC program or you may choose to conduct your
    interview at one of the schools you have decided you are interested in attending. When
    you attend your interview, you must provide your interviewer with a statement of your
    height and weight. These measures must be taken in street clothes and without shoes.
    You should take a copy of your the Presidential Fitness Test or the Army Physical Fitness
    Test results and an official copy of your high school transcript to the interview. Your
    interviewer will assess your potential as an Army officer. The interviewer will assign up
    to 200 points to you based upon the results of the interview. Each student can achieve
    1000 Whole Person points during the interview evaluation process. Your 1000 point
    Whole Person score is a merit based score made up of: 1) 250 points for your ACT/SAT
    score; 2) 200 points for your scholar/athlete/leader evaluation based upon your athletic,
    scholastic, and leadership achievements; 3) 200 points from your interview; and 3) 350
    points are determined by the board of officers. Student’s scores are then placed in an
    order of merit list (OML), in descending order, of their Whole Person point score.
    Once you have completed your interview and provided verification of your
    information contained in the scholarship application; your personal information and
    interview will be evaluated by a board of Army officers. These officers will assemble
    monthly during a typical school year and will review scholarship prospects with
    completed applications and interviews at the time the board meets. These officers are
    generally Professor’s of Military Science leading ARMY ROTC programs across the
    United States. The board of officers will create an order of OML, mentioned earlier, by
    rank ordering all the applicants based upon their total Whole Person score. It is possible
    that all applicants are qualified for an ARMY ROTC Scholarship on a particular board.
    Once the OML is compiled and based upon available scholarship funds, Cadet Command
    will determine how many scholarships will be offered for that scholarship board. Any
    applicants who are not offered a scholarship on that order of merit list will automatically
    be considered for a scholarship offer when the next board meets, usually the next month.
    If you are not selected for a scholarship early, do not become discouraged. The
    centralized scholarship process is designed so that a limited number of scholarships are
    awarded by each board. You will know you were selected for a scholarship during a
    particular month because you will receive a letter from Cadet Command which indicates
    you were selected. If you do not receive a letter, do not panic. You will receive a letter
    by mid May of your senior year, at the latest, if you are offered a scholarship.
    Once you receive a letter from Cadet Command offering you a scholarship, you
    must respond to Cadet Command within 30 days of your decision to accept the offer and
    what school you will attend and/or accepted to. You can make this selection by emailing
    your acceptance form to attccps@usacc.army.mil or faxing the acceptance it to
    757-788-4643. You may also mail your acceptance to the address listed in your
    scholarship offer letter. You may change your school of attendance among the schools on
    your offer letter until the 1 May deadline.
    You must do the research on your selected universities of choice and their ROTC
    programs prior to electing which school to use your scholarship. This is very important.
    You must also complete the university admissions process separately from the Army
    ROTC scholarship process. ARMY ROTC scholarships may be awarded to students; but
    the offer is contingent upon your acceptance to the university. You must gain acceptance
    to the university. Always coordinate directly with the university admissions department in
    addition to your coordination with the ARMY ROTC Department. Additionally, you
    should ensure that the universities for which you indicated an interest actually offer the
    degree programs you have elected.
    During the summer months you should strive to make sure you complete your
    Department of Defense Medical Review Board (DODMERB) medical examination and
    make sure you can pass an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). Your scholarship is
    effective after you arrive on campus and pass the APFT and all DODMERB medical
    examination requirements.
