Support the EWU ROTC Program

EWU Army ROTC also has scholarships sponsored by alumni that go towards ROTC students.  Our most prominent alumni scholarship is the Randy Van Turner ROTC Scholarship.  This scholarship awards up to one year of tuition for qualified Cadets.  Please contact us to learn more about our alumni scholarships.

In memory of founding member, Randy Van Turner, the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity of Eastern Washington State College established a tradition of support and giving back to future generations of Eastern students. To support ROTC cadets, the Randy Van Turner ROTC Scholarship was established in 2018. The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity brothers and their families honor Randy—and their brotherhood—through these scholarships.
