The Army ROTC offers many forms of financial assistance to students pursuing medicine in the Army. This assistance can take the form of scholarships to cover tuition and book costs as well as a monthly stipend.
Scholarship recipients incur an eight-year service obligation (of which the first four years are active duty). At the completion of the first four years, you may elect to continue on active duty or enter the Army Reserves for the remaining four years. Non-scholarship recipients also incur an eight year obligation, but the active duty commitment is only three years. At the completion of the first three years, you may elect to continue on active duty or enter the Army Reserves for the remaining five years.
