Hampden-Sydney men may enroll in the Army ROTC program through the University of Richmond. Army ROTC is a national leadership development program that educates and prepares highly talented college students to become Army Officers while pursuing the major of their choice with a focus on academics, campus leadership opportunities, and athletics. The ROTC program is an elective program that provides a combination of academics and hands-on activities designed to develop your leadership potential while taking you through all the required training to become an Army Officer. Upon successful completion of the program, students are commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant at graduation. Students may also compete for Army ROTC scholarships that pay full tuition, books, and a monthly stipend. These competitive scholarships, not related to family income, are awarded on academic merit, leadership potential, extracurricular involvement, and athletics.
