Simultaneous Membership Program

20160415-20160415-123The Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) allows Soldiers to serve in the Army Reserve or National Guard and participate in ROTC while in college, giving Soldiers the opportunity to gain additional experience and training. They receive their regular National Guard or Reserve benefits while also receiving ROTC stipends.

Cadets wanting to take advantage of the many benefits can join the National Guard or Reserve before or during their freshman and sophomore years. These Cadets will generally miss one semester of school while attending Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Once contracted, SMP Cadets are considered non-deployable during their time in ROTC.

Prospective SMP Cadets should contact SSG Friedel at 478-331-9955.

Scholarship Opportunities:
Scholarship opportunities are available to those SMP Cadets who would like to commission into the Army National Guard or Army Reserve rather than Active Duty. These scholarships can be used for either Room & Board OR Tuition & Fees. Cadets will also receive a $1200 annual book allowance, and ROTC monthly stipend of $350-$500, GI Bill, and SMP Kicker.

Recipients must also have completed Basic Training and AIT, have at least 30 credit hours (unless receiving the 4YR Minuteman Scholarship), and meet the academic and physical standards.
