Reserved Officers Training Corps
"The Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) is a college cadet program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military. In exchange for a paid college education and a guaranteed post-college career, participants, or cadets, commit to serve in the Military after graduation as officers. Each service branch has its own take on ROTC. Each ROTC program offers either a 4-year or 2-year scholarship, covering 100% of tuition, books, fees, room and board, and a monthly stipend. Yes, you read that right. A monthly stipend - so you're getting PAID to go to college, all the while college is already paid for. What company is going to offer you paid college expenses, while PAYING you to go to college, and offer you a guaranteed job after you graduate for at least 4 years???
