Green-to-Gold Program

The Army Green to Gold program is designed for Active Duty enlisted Soldiers to pursue their Bachelors or Masters degrees and commission through ROTC. Applications are received at the national level, screened for eligibility and boarded by Army officers for selection of the winners. The application deadline for Green to Gold Scholarships is 1 February. The submission deadline for Green to Gold Hip Pocket Scholarships is 1 April.

This program offers enlisted Soldiers three unique ways to earn a baccalaureate degree:

  • Green to Gold Scholarships: 4-year, 3-year and 2- year scholarships given to soldiers currently on active duty with an ETS date past 30 Jun prior to fall college attendance or an ETS date past 30 Nov prior to spring college attendance.
  • Non-Scholarship Option: for Soldiers who have already completed two years of college.
  • Active Duty Option: for Soldiers who want to remain on Active Duty and attend college.
