Opportunity awaits: NROTC Scholarship


Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps is a program designed to prepare college students to become commissioned officers in the Navy or the Marine Corps.

NROTC scholarships, which cover full tuition and provide a stipend of $750 per academic year for textbooks and a subsistence allowance each academic month ranging from $250 for freshmen to $400 for seniors, are available.

Becoming a Midshipman in the NROTC program at Union entails attending physical training sessions (known as PT) twice a week, leadership labs once a week and Naval Science courses throughout each term. All of these aspects take place at RPI, the host NROTC Unit, which is only a 25-minute drive away.

During each summer, you have the opportunity and privilege to participate in various hands-on training programs.

You might find yourself in a nuclear-powered submarine, a flight squadron, a Marine Corps unit or even a surface ship surrounded by the best sailors and marines that the Navy and Marine Corps team has to offer anywhere in the world.

The various summer training programs are designed to instill awareness of the warfare areas and provide midshipmen with the background necessary to make informed decisions regarding their career choice.

Above all, this program is meant for individuals who view themselves as leaders and desire to serve in the world’s greatest Navy or Marine Corps while defending freedom and democracy around the globe.

Upon your graduation, you will commission as either a Marine Corps Officer or an Unrestricted Line Officer in one of the following Navy warfare communities: submarine, surface warfare, aviation, special warfare (Navy SEALs), or special operations (Explosives Ordinance Disposal or EOD).
