Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps Scholarship – Due Dec. 31, 2018
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS
Applicants must use the online application to complete and submit all the required information in order to apply for the Navy ROTC scholarship.
This online application is extensive and may require several hours to complete. You are able to start the application and save your progress as you complete each section. We have provided an Application Information Checklist to assist you in gathering information and to streamline the process of applying for a scholarship.
Applicants are asked to pick five Navy ROTC affiliated colleges or universities in their scholarship application. Each school must be for a different Navy ROTC Unit and one of the top three choices must be a state school where they qualify to receive an in-state tuition rate, not necessarily in the applicant’s home state.
Each applicant must also select an academic program in which they intend to major. All academic programs fall into three tiers relative to the Navy’s technical needs.
Scholarships will be awarded to an Navy ROTC unit in conjunction with the academic major and tier the applicant specified on their application. If offered the scholarship, the student will be expected to attend the school where their scholarship is placed and have the ability to request a change of placement as needed or desired. Requests are approved on a case-by-case basis and are mainly dependent on the scholarship availability at the requested school at the time of processing. The student must be mindful if they choose a cross-town school that there may be cross-town commuting costs and class timing issues which will need to be resolved. The enrolled school must support the academic major or equivalent for which the scholarship was awarded. Also, the student must have applied for admission to and been accepted at any school they wish to utilize the scholarship.
