WESTMINSTER, Md. — Nathan Biddle of Easton, a student at McDaniel College, has earned a three-year advanced designee Army ROTC Scholarship valued at $150,000.
Scholarships totaling nearly $1.3 million were awarded to the Green Terror Battalion.
The scholarship, which is awarded based on scholastic, athletic and leadership attributes, covers full tuition, room and board, and fees, plus additional funds for books, as well as a monthly living stipend. The student will be commissioned as a second lieutenant and will be required to serve active duty in the Army Reserve or National Guard upon graduating from McDaniel.
Army ROTC has been a tradition at the college since 1919, and the Green Terror Battalion is one of the oldest ROTC programs in the nation. McDaniel has consistently been recognized among military-friendly schools and the college's Military Legacy Scholarship guarantees up to $100,000 over four years to all military veterans, active-duty military personnel and their children. McDaniel also participates in the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program.
