2011-2012 CMP COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
FOR JROTC AND ROTC RIFLE SHOOTERS
The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will provide scholarship assistance to encourage and reward outstanding and deserving students in JROTC/ROTC programs who also excel in rifle team programs at their schools. The CMP seeks applications from high school seniors who will enroll in a four-year college or university or from college students who are already in pursuit of a four-year degree.
The CMP will award a combined maximum of 75 $1000 one-year ROTC scholarships on the basis of merit to selected Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force JROTC, and Army and Navy ROTC applicants during the current school year for undergraduate college or university study. Scholarships are one-year awards, but scholarship recipients may reapply for scholarships in subsequent years if they remain enrolled in ROTC, maintain a 2.5 GPA, continue to excel in ROTC or college rifle team activities and continue to meet other scholarship eligibility criteria.
The scholarships are paid to the scholarship recipient through the financial aid office of the college or university where the student is enrolled. Scholarship checks will be forwarded to the PMS of the college or university where the student is enrolled.
