4-Year College Scholarship

How scholarship recipients are chosen

Selection is based on the "whole person" concept: academic record, SAT or ACT test results, school evaluations, extra-curricular activities, leadership and athletics, and a personal interview with a scholarship board at the desired university.

Since the Army, like many of today's top organizations, values technological skills, scholarship preference is given to students pursuing degrees in engineering, physical sciences, and nursing, but all MTSU academic majors qualify to compete for scholarships.
