      The U.S. Army's newly announced signing bonus for sophomore ROTC students is available through Widener University's Dauntless Battalion. The Army recently announced nationally that it had established a $5,000 signing bonus, to be awarded to current college sophomores who have the physical stamina and mental agility to be leaders in the U.S. Army. Sophomore students would attend basic camp at Fort Knox this summer. If they successfully complete the basic camp, the Army has announced it will contract with them and pay the signing bonus. Upon graduation, ROTC cadets who have successfully completed the military science requirements will receive positions as commissioned officers in the U.S. Army.
