Are you in JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) in high school? Now you can begin earning college scholarships for your participation in JROTC as early as the 9th grade, even if you don't plan to pursue it in college. Regis University, University of Vermont, Loyola University Maryland and 232 other colleges offer up to $5,400 in scholarships for every year of JROTC.
