University of Wyoming’s ROTC Program

Benefits of enrolling in the University of Wyoming’s ROTC program include scholarship opportunities to help pay for school, leadership opportunities that easily translate into many career fields, as well as the feeling of pride in serving this great country alongside other highly motivated people.  As a cadet in the Cowboy Battalion, students will have the opportunity to participate in many cultural programs, attend training within the U.S. and abroad, and be heavily involved in the Laramie community.  In addition to the normal ROTC stipend, cadets at the University of Wyoming receive an additional room & board stipend of up to $1,150 per semester.  At the end of their experience in the ROTC program, they will be able to commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or the National Guard.

Now is a great time for your Seniors and Juniors to start looking at scholarships. The University of Wyoming’s ROTC program offer a number of scholarship opportunities.  There are 3 or 4 year National Scholarships available.  If for some reason your students don’t get one of the many National Scholarships, we have numerous campus based scholarships that we can offer them once they get here. The great thing about the University of Wyoming is that we have the 2nd least expensive out of state tuition in the country.  Our out of state tuition is actually comparable with most states in state tuition.

Juniors and seniors, interested in military service as well as education, who would  more information, may contact Nicholas Bosanko, Scholarship and Enrollment Officer, at 307-766-3394 or
