ROTC and Outside Awards

Outside awards consist of aid from sources and agencies other than VMI and are considered resources for determining financial assistance. It is incumbent upon the student to notify the Financial Aid Office of such awards.

ROTC Scholarships

VMI cadets may receive ROTC scholarships for Army, Marines, Navy, or Air Force for all or part of the cadetship.  These scholarships cover tuition and may also include allowances for books and fees and living expenses. ROTC scholarships offer opportunities to obtain leadership positions in the armed forces upon graduation.
