ROTC Scholarships

Our scholarship program began in 2001 under the chapter leadership of Colonel Chuck Schluter, USA.  Our Scholarship Chairs have been:

  • 2017 – present:  Captain Jon Shawl, USN
  • 2011 – 2016:       Colonel Rob Welch, USA
  • 2005 – 2010:      Colonel Ron Worthington, USAF
  • 2003 – 2004:      Lt. Colonel Richard Horn, USA
  • 2001 – 2002:       Lt. Colonel Raymond Deane, USAF

During  our program’s first 15 years, we awarded 62 college scholarships to highly deserving college bound JROTC high school students.  In 2016, we transitioned to a ROTC scholarship program with Arizona State University, awarding scholarships to non-contracted ROTC students in the last half of their junior year.
