Kentucky State University has entered into a partnership agreement with the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program at the University of Kentucky. Currently only AMS 102 and AMS 103 are offered on the KSU campus; all other Military Science classes are taught at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky. Students who wish to participate in the ROTC program receive ROTC scholarship assistance, become commissioned as second lieutenants in the United States Army, and may attend the Military Science program at the University of Kentucky through this partnership agreement. Participating students must provide their own transportation to the University of Kentucky for Military Science classes that are not taught on the KSU campus as well as other ROTC activities.
The Military Science Program is open to both men and women and follows a general military science curriculum. Three- and two-year ROTC scholarships are available on an equally competitive basis to qualified freshmen and sophomores. These scholarships pay all tuition and required fees up to $8,000 or 80% of the combined total of tuition and required fees for costs over $8,000. The scholarship students also receive a $100 monthly stipend. A military obligation is incurred in exchange for the scholarship funds. Minimum courses required and credit hours for each are listed in the course description section of this Bulletin under the Army Military Studies (AMS) course prefix.
Students interested in the Army ROTC Program should contact the Professor of Military Science, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40506 (telephone 859-257-6865) for further information.
