ABOUT THE PROGRAM:


The Thurgood Marshall College Fund and U.S. Army are in partnership to promote educational opportunities and scholarships for African-American students through the Army’s ROTC program. This partnership addresses the shortage of African-Americans pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and is looking to attract the best and brightest African-American high school students to give them the chance to become the next generation of military officer leaders by applying for a 2-, 3- or 4-year ROTC scholarship.
