Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)
LACK OF MONEY is the main reason prospects give for not going to Texas A&M...Well this excuse is no longer valid. If a prospect really wants to be an Aggie in The Corps the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) could be the answer. The SMP is an excellent internship between the Texas National Guard and the Army ROTC, which can provide all the financial assistance required for a student to attend Texas A&M. If a prospect begins in high school, this program can pay up to $131,785 to attend Texas A&M and become a dedicated Texas Army National Guard Officer. If the prospect doesn't want to be tied to the Guard and wants to go on Active Duty, the SMP program will pay $101,785. Remember, total cost to attend Texas A&M over four years is less than $80,000. If you have a high school prospect looking for college funds direct them to look into this program. For details contact Spencer Bulger (866) 759-0737.
