Creighton University is one of 272 schools nationwide that sponsors a Military Science Program on a college campus. Students in the Creighton Army ROTC program complete a degree in their chosen major while training to become officers in the United States Army. The Army ROTC program teaches personal development, ethics, values, tactics and leadership. All majors and all levels (freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors) are welcome to apply. Over 2,300 officers have graduated from Creighton's program, which dates back to 1919.
We offer two-, three- and four-year full-ride scholarships that pay full tuition, a monthly stipend that totals to approximately $4,500/year and a book stipend of $1200/year. Graduates are guaranteed a full-time job at a starting salary of about $43,000/year. Within four years they make approximately $75,000/year. Additionally, there are fully funded graduate opportunities available after a student graduates (medical school, physical therapy, law school and many more).
The Military Science department also offers the Leaders Training Course, a summer internship. Students experience adventure training, water survival, land navigation, orienteering, marksmanship, team building exercises and other simulated leadership exercises. Students who complete the course can compete for a two-year scholarship, a $5,000 bonus and $800 for attending. Airfare, lodging and food are all provided.
