ISU Army ROTC receives 40 Illinois State Scholarships each year. the Illinois State Scholarship will be referred to as the Illinois State Tuition Waiver (ILSTW) from this point forward to avoid any confusion with our federal scholarships. The Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) mandates that these are to be awarded a minimum of 10 per Military Science class if available. If awarded, 100% tuition and the general activity fee will be waived for the semester that the tuition waiver has been awarded in. Registration for the Military Science class and a commitment to the ISU Army ROTC Redbird Battalion is required for the semester that the tuition waiver was awarded in with the exception of the summer waiver. The Military Science class must have been taken during the spring semester in order to be considered for the summer waiver.
Applications for the upcoming semester's tuition waiver will be available at a minimum one month prior to the start of the semester it is to be awarded in. Any unused tuition waivers from the first board will be available to compete for during a second tuition waiver board.
Tuition waiver applicants are assessed on a points system based off of scholar/athlete/leader criteria. All applicants are paper boarded. An Order of Merit List will be created and each applicant will be rank ordered by their total number of points. A minimum number of points must be met in order to be considered for the tuition waiver. On a case by case basis, applicants not meeting the minimum point requirement may still be considered for the waiver. In-coming freshmen will use all four years of school data for their scholar/athlete/leader criteria. The minimum points required are found in our standard operating procedures. These along with the point sheets are below under the eligibility requirements.
All students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree who are residents of the state of Illinois, registered with Selective Service (when applicable) and are meeting the criteria in a and h below are eligible to apply for this scholarship. The waiver will not be awarded to students who do not meet the eligibility requirements.
