Military Programs

We offer many programs for students associated with the military.

ROTC Programs

If you're involved in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), you can earn scholarships through academic merit. There are also non-scholarship programs available that pay monthly stipends. Find out more about Air Force, Navy and Army ROTC programs that are available at Purdue.

Part-time Military Service

Other part-time military service is available in the National Guard, and in the Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force reserves. In exchange for service on weekends and a couple of weeks during the summer, you can receive tuition benefits, repayment of portions of your federal student loans and full-time employment during summer breaks. All of this is in addition to pay received for part-time service. How awesome is that?

Military Veteran or Child of Military Veteran Students

As a military veteran, or child of a veteran, you are eligible to receive federal financial aid, including low-interest student loans, in addition to veteran's benefits. To receive these aid benefits, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.
