U.S. Army ROTC
Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Colonel Scott Sonsalla and I am the Director of Recruiting and Incentives for US Army Cadet Command. I would like to start by thanking you for all of the assistance you have provided over the past years assisting your students who were competing for Army ROTC scholarships. Our 2021 National High School Scholarship campaign kicked off on June 12th and will continue through March 4, 2021. I am reaching out to again ask for your assistance in informing students that Army ROTC scholarships are available and they should begin their applications now.
As you know, the COVID-19 Pandemic has changed the way the world works. From telework to the virtual classroom, everything we do these days is on-line. Even our colleges are adapting to the new environment through full time classroom, hybrid, or 100% online learning. This summer's SAT and ACT tests were cancelled affecting how colleges and entities like ours review applications. Please let your students know that we are working every day to ensure that we develop and maintain the processes necessary to ensure that we can continue to offer these scholarships despite the challenges created by COVID-19.

Army ROTC provides full tuition and fees (or $10K for room and board) scholarships to over 2000 high school students each year. We intend to continue to sustain that same level of commitment into 2021. In addition to the tuition and fees, the scholarship pays $1200 annually for books and a stipend of $420 per months (for up to 10 months a year.)

I have provided links to several resources that you can use to assist in counseling your students. One is the Army ROTC overview. It explains, in general terms, the basic eligibility and benefits for the program. The other two items are a resource that you can use to assist the students in preparing for the ACT/SAT as they wait for the tests to be conducted. These tools provide a great way for students to use their spare time to improve test scores. All are easily downloaded by clicking the links below.
