Simultaneous Membership Program
If you are interested in, or want more information about the SMP program contact the recruiting office: (801) 626-8609. For students who are already in either the Army National Guard or Army Reserve, or who want to serve in the Guard or Reserves, the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) exists for you. By being in the SMP you will be gaining valuable experience and earning extra income. When you go to your drill you will be paid at the rate of a Sergeant E-5 (or higher based on your enlisted rank). You'll serve as an officer trainee in a Guard or Reserve unit and perform duties commensurate with the grade of second lieutenant. In addition to drill pay you will be eligible to receive your G.I. Bill, G.I. Bill Kicker, and ROTC stipend. While you are a SMP Cadet you are considered Non-Deployable.

Scholarship amounts are up to $10,000 per year. Recipients of this scholarship must also agree to serve in the Army Reserve or the Utah Army National Guard after commissioning.
