ROTC Scholarship

Each year MOAA,HA awards a $1000 scholarship to cadets selected by the University of Houston, until the Houston Corps of Cadets Endowment Fund is fully funded. Deadline for nominations is March 31 of each year.

Endowment Fund for ROTC Students

Funds are available for outstanding cadets who want to become military officers but lack the finances for school. MOAA, Houston Area, and The University of Houston have entered into an Endowment Agreement to support ROTC cadets who drill at the U of H. The purpose of the Endowment Fund is a solid, growing base that makes grants from the earnings of the Fund.

All Army and Air Force cadets at all Houston universities–including HBU, Rice, TSU, Saint Thomas, and UH–drill at the University of Houston. The U of H is one of the strongest supporters of Air Force and Army ROTC in the nation, and the Houston Corps of Cadets is second in number only to Texas A&M. These cadets want to join the ranks of the finest men and women in America in the U. S. Armed Forces, but many do not have the money to remain in school.

This permanent Endowment Fund provides grants–not loans–to outstanding cadets, selected by the professors of Military Science and Tactics, for their training in the Houston Corps of Cadets. The funds are administered and invested by the U of H’s fund managers, and donations are fully deductible for tax purposes.

MOAA,HA has already reached its initial goal of $10,000, and is now working toward its next plateau of $200,000. Contribution form may be found at the following link:
