Are you interested in becoming an Army officer? Read below to find out more about the University of North Georgia (UNG) Corps of Cadets.
We are one of only six senior military colleges in the nation, and we’re by far the least expensive. Our Cadets from your state pay in-state tuition, saving them more than $50,000 over their four years of college.
We’re looking for disciplined young men and women who want to be leaders. Your student should have good grades, a record of extra-curricular achievement, and be physically fit.
Please tell them to apply for the Army ROTC scholarship now. The first of three national boards meets in October.
U.S. Army Cadet Command awarded 68 high school seniors scholarships who began as new Cadets at UNG this fall. In fact, we have over 250 scholarship recipients in our Corps of Cadets.
Nation-wide, for academic year 2016-2017, about 8,500 high school seniors applied for the scholarship. About 2,500 were awarded. About 25% of those were 4-year scholarships and 75% were 3-year scholarships.
The nation-wide profile for the 2016 academic year recipients was:
· 95% were in the top 50% of their academic classes (69% were in the top 25%)
· 26% were class officers
· 76% earned varsity sports letters
· 59% were varsity team sports captains
· 28% were in JROTC
· 18% were club president
· 3.6 average GPA
· 1268 math + critical reading SAT; 28 ACT composite score
We created a very detailed web site for the application process: http://ung.edu/military-college-admissions/costs-financial-aid/scholarships-and-grants/army-rotc-scholarship.php
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact our Army ROTC Scholarship expert, Mr. Greg Killeen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-864-1884.

Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have invited all Florida students to participate in the 2016 Hispanic Heritage Month art and essay contests which will be centered around the theme, “Honoring Hispanic American Heroes: Veterans, Military, Law Enforcement and First Responders.” Students in grades K-3 have a chance to win a cash prize by submitting artwork, and students in grades 4-12 can earn a 4-year Florida Prepaid Scholarship through the essay contest.
The prizes could transform the lives of a student in your class or school. I hope that you will encourage all of your students to take full advantage of this opportunity to enhance their appreciation for Hispanic American History and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations.
Additionally, students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to nominate full-time, Hispanic American educators in elementary, middle and high schools for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award.
The deadline for all submissions is 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 9, 2016.
To learn more about Florida’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration and contests, including contest rules and forms, visit www.FloridaHispanicHeritage.com.
Students who have an interest in medicine, S.T.E.M. fields, research, the wellbeing of others and/or community health will find great opportunities with a career path in pharmacy.
Many people believe that the opportunities within pharmacy are limited to “counting pills” behind a counter, where in fact, only a small percentage of pharmacists work in a retail setting (and even those who do, do not “count pills”). The truth is, most pharmacists work in multidisciplinary teams in hospitals providing direct support to physicians and patients, in advanced bio-medical labs engaged in cutting edge research, overseas as a part of a medical team serving in missions, and as community health providers – providing free health screenings, medical consultations, and low-cost immunizations.

As the first college in the country to adopt a policy to admit students regardless of race, Oberlin College has a deep commitment to access and inclusion. That’s why we offer the Multicultural Visit Program. This all-expenses-paid trip to campus allows students to experience the vibrancy and diversity of a top liberal arts college that challenges convention, embraces difference, and encourages originality.
High school seniors selected for the program will be hosted overnight by a current Oberlin student and will attend classes, visit with professors, participate in admissions and financial aid workshops, and get a firsthand view of campus life.
We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds such as American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African-American, Hispanic/Latino(a), Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. We will also consider low income and/or first-generation to college students, regardless of cultural or racial background.
Students can apply to one of three visit weekends in the fall:
