Army ROTC Program

Army ROTC is one of the top leadership training programs in the country, helping students pay for college while gaining valuable experience that can lead them to a successful career.

Under an inter-institutional arrangement with the University of Kentucky, Transylvania offers qualified students an opportunity to participate in Army ROTC courses on the UK campus.

Scholarships are available, and students receiving Army ROTC scholarships must enroll for military science courses at the University of Kentucky. 

These scholarships cover:

  • Tuition and fees
  • A $1,200 textbook allowance
  • A $300-500 tax-free monthly stipend during the academic year for each year the student is on scholarship

Transylvania provides scholarships and grant assistance to cover the costs of room and board for all three- and four-year recipients. Upon graduation, recipients receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. 

For more information contact the Army ROTC office at the University of Kentucky, (859) 257-6865 or 6864, or visit armyrotc.as.uky.edu.
