CMP Accepting Applications for JROTC/ROTC Scholarships

CAMP PERRY, OHIO - -(ShootingWire.com)- If you are or know of a JROTC high school senior or ROTC college underclass cadet in good standing who participates on a competitive rifle club or varsity team, it’s time to spread the word that applications are available to apply for a one-thousand dollar CMP ROTC scholarship. The deadline for applications is 5 March 2009.

This year the CMP will award 100 scholarships for the 2009-2010 academic year. The CMP is also pleased to announce that in addition being available to Army, Navy and U. S. Marine Corps students, the CMP ROTC Scholarship Program is now open to Air Force JROTC seniors and Air Force ROTC cadets.

Now in its ninth year, the CMP ROTC Scholarship Program provides up to 100 one-thousand dollar scholarships to students who excel in rifle marksmanship, who are enrolled or will enroll in ROTC, who have excellent academic and leadership records and who have the potential to serve as officers in the U.S. Armed Forces. The scholarships date back to 2000 when 35 ROTC Cadets were awarded CMP funding for college. Since then, the CMP has awarded more than $700,000 in scholarships. Though the number of applicants always exceeds the total scholarships available, all cadets who feel they meet the requirements are strongly encouraged to apply.

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must have achieved at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average. High school seniors must be current members of a high school JROTC rifle team who intend to enroll in ROTC in college. College underclassmen must be enrolled in ROTC and be active in a college varsity, club or ROTC rifle team. Scholarship boards select successful applicants in March or April and announcements of scholarship recipients are typically released in May. Scholarship checks are sent in August to the ROTC units where the scholarship recipients are enrolled to attend college classes in the fall.

With the rising costs of a college education, the CMP ROTC Scholarship Program can help ROTC students who excel in rifle marksmanship meet the high costs of books, fees and other college expenses.
