GMC awards cadets Army ROTC scholarships

Georgia Military College awarded 46 cadets Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships. Brigadier General Curt Rauhut, Georgia Military College’s Executive Vice President, made a check presentation to the cadets. Each cadet has been offered an Army ROTC scholarship with benefits up to $120,000. To be eligible, cadets must be medically qualified and physically fit. They must also have a minimum 2.5 Grade Point Average (GPA) and score at least a 920 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or a 19 on the American College Testing (ACT). The scholarships will be initially used during their first two-years at Georgia Military College. The remaining will be applied at a follow on four-year college Army ROTC program.

“Army ROTC scholarships will pay for tuition, fees, and books,” said Brian Hamilton, Georgia Military College’s Recruiting, Scholarship Enrollment and Operations Officer. “Georgia Military College pays for their room and board, so there’s no cost to the cadets at all. Also, when they leave here to go get their bachelor’s degree the Educational Assistance Program (EAP) will pay for tuition, fees, books or room and board.”

The cadets are currently participating in a mini camp at Georgia Military College before departing Thursday, June 23 to Fort Knox, Kentucky for a month long Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET).
