WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita State University has partnered with the Kansas National Guard and Cadet Command Army ROTC to begin offering a Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.
The program, housed under WSU’s Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, will begin in fall 2019, creating a path to college for the nearly 2,500 students already involved in Junior ROTC programs at Wichita-area middle and high schools.
Students going through WSU’s Army ROTC program will select a major of their choosing and will minor in military science.
Through their courses and the program, the community of ROTC students will learn the skills to be an effective leader and develop a sense of dedication, duty and discipline.
A variety of scholarships are offered from Army ROTC and the Kansas National Guard. Scholarships pay 100 percent tuition and fees, or a $5,000 housing stipend per semester. Students contracted with the Kansas National Guard can receive up to $4,000 each semester in addition to the scholarship.
