Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. During classes and field training, you will learn first-hand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and how to conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and become a leader for life.

Take the class as an elective to see if the Army is for you. There is no commitment by doing so.

Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending La Salle, Army ROTC has scholarships available. Beginning in the 2008-2009 academic year, ROTC students will be eligible for a new scholarship program named in honor of U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William Burns, ’54. Burns, who sits on the University’s Board of Trustees, had been a top negotiator for nuclear disarmament during the Reagan Administration. He previously instructed ROTC as a faculty member at La Salle.

Scholarship incentives for eligible students include:

  1. Full tuition
  2. $1,200 per year for book money
  3. $350-$500 a month stipend (depending on your grade)
  4. Free Room and Board (housing and meal-plan)

Free room and board are covered under the General Burns Scholarship which is awarded exclusively to Army ROTC scholarship winners at La Salle University.
