ROTC Scholarships  (ECP Program)

If you meet the qualification requirements for acceptance into the Early Commissioning Program and have a High School GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale), then you qualify to compete for an Army Two-Year Scholarship worth more than $20,000 per year in total benefits.

Substantial benefits paid by the Army can accrue to college-level ROTC cadets, benefits which can significantly reduce the cost of attending Marion Military Institute. The Army will pay Advanced ROTC (ECP) college cadets (those taking Military Science III or Military Science IV) a one-time uniform allowance of approximately $1,272.

In addition, advanced course cadets are paid a subsistence allowance of $450 per month for Military Science III cadets and $500 per month for Military Science IV cadets for nine months of each academic year. Uniform allowances are paid by the Army directly to individual cadets about midway through the first year and midway through the second year.
