The U.S. Army ROTC recognized Cadet Brandon Pitchford with a $36,000 ROTC scholarship in Charlotte, N.C. during the annual Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Basketball Tournament, which was held February 23-28, 2015.

The Army has partnered with the CIAA for five years to develop and promote leadership, teamwork and academic excellence. The partnership with CIAA is another example of the Army’s commitment to helping young Americans create their own path to success.

Pitchford is one of hundreds of ROTC Cadets at CIAA institutions receiving funds for tuition and educational fees through the Army ROTC program. Financial benefits include two-, three- and four-year scholarships, an annual book allowance and a tax-free stipend of up to $500 a month.
