JROTC Scholarship

In February, 11 students from Phoenix Military Academy were taken to UIC to attend a scholarship event, to help pay for their tuition and fees. It was an opportunity for them to have a chance at winning the ROTC scholarship. The ROTC scholarship is a scholarship that helps students pay off their tuition and fees, by giving them an opportunity to be a leader in their civilian and military life. It also gives them the chance to be enlisted as an officer in the military.

“It prepares me for life and makes me be a part of the military,” said senior Andrew Mora.

This scholarship is not just given to anyone. They must meet the requirements, which are to have a 3.0 GPA, bea US citizen, pass a PT test and complete an interview.
Senior Isabel Vidal said how smooth the process was and how she thinks she did.

“[The] process wasn’t that difficult. We did a PT test and we had an interview. Although I’m not confident in my PT Test I do feel confident about the interview,” said Vidal.

In the past, several Phoenix cadets have won the scholarship and attended local colleges on the ROTC scholarship.
