Army ROTC Summer Leadership Opportunity

I hope this message finds you well. I can imagine you are busy as the school year wraps up. I am reaching out to pass along some information on Army ROTC’s Summer Leadership Program (Basic Camp). Michigan Tech has the ability to sponsor additional attendees, so any assistance in spreading the word is greatly appreciated! 

What is Summer Leadership Program (Basic Camp)?

This program is a month-long training held annually at Ft. Knox Kentucky. The program is designed to help college students experience Army ROTC and decide if it is something they would like to continue. Unlike the traditional Basic Training for enlistment, this program focuses on the leadership and critical thinking skills needed to succeed as an Army Officer. 

There is no commitment to enroll or complete ROTC, but those who complete and elect to continue can earn a $5,000 bonus / 2-Year Full Tuition Scholarship. There is no cost for the student to attend. 

Ideal candidates would be academic sophomores/juniors with two years remaining. There are certain eligibility requirements, such as U.S. citizenship and health standards. I am happy to provide additional details to anyone interested. 

Beyond this opportunity, please feel free to contact me with questions. We are proud to have the top ranked Army ROTC program in our region. Our Cadets have a near 100% placement rate into internships and their career branches of choice. While some choose to compete for Active Duty, we have a substantial number who serve part-time in a reserve component and pursue a career in the private sector. 

Best Regards,
