February 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #102: Competitive Military Academy Scholarships Cover All Expenses

Tip of the Week

The four United States Military Academies offer college scholarships to the highest achieving high school seniors each year. Awards cover full tuition, books, room, board, a monthly stipend, and medical and dental insurance for four full years of education at West Point, Annapolis, The Air Force Academy, or the Coast Guard Academy.

These academic excellence scholarships are highly competitive, and are awarded on the basis of high school grades, SAT or ACT scores, athletics, extracurricular activities, community involvement, demonstrated leadership ability, and employment experience. Admission to the military academies is limited to scholarship recipients.

Graduates are required to serve a minimum of five years in the military. Upon graduation, each cadet receives a Bachelorís degree and is appointed to a leadership position in the branch of service that corresponds with the particular academy attended.
