Boston University Army ROTC

Welcome to the Charles River Battalion!

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and can be a part of your college curriculum. Being a student at Boston University and learning to become a leader will make your college experience even richer—and prepare you for the future.

Why Boston University Army ROTC?

Our program is rooted in rich history and is located in the heart of Boston across from Fenway Park on the Boston University Campus. We provide rigorous and exciting training to prepare you for your future as a 2LT in the US Army. Our training is challenging, but we always remember that you are a student first and put emphasis on your studies and education. Our program gives the opportunity to contract at Fenway Park and to commission at Fanueil Hall.  Between those major events, we provide the best military tactics training with the best equipment and resources thanks to our relationship with partners in the Massachusetts Army National Guard.

Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. There are various scholarships available and details can be found on our page “Becoming an Officer“. There are also campus-based Army ROTC scholarships given out yearly to outstanding Cadets determined by the Professor of Military Science. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades, not financial needs.
