Minority Serving Institution Scholarship Reservation (MSISR)

The minority serving institution scholarship is dedicated toward students who are interested in attending a Historically Black College & University (HBCU), Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) or Minority Serving Institution (MSI).This scholarship covers the same kind of benefits in relation to the national scholarship. 

USMC Frederick C. Branch (FCB)

The Frederick C. Branch Leadership Scholarship is named in honor of the first African-American Marine Corps Officer who was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant on 10
November 1945. This is a subset of the NROTC scholarship.
It is available at 17 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

NROTC Preparatory Program Scholarship

The preparatory program scholarship is focused around students who have great potential for the NROTC program but lack the necessary standardized test scores or advanced course completions.
This scholarship helps potential Midshipmen who do not meet the test score requirements by allowing them to be a part of the program with their first year of tuition covered, giving them the opportunity to strengthen their academic background to increase their scores and earn them the full benefits of the scholarship.
*NPP Midshipmen will not have monthly stipend for their first year*

College Programmer

The college programmer option is geared towards those who do not have a scholarship with the NROTC program.
This still allows civilians to come in and be a part of the unit, but the military does not cover the cost of tuition or the other expenses related to the college experience.
Generally, college programmers pay for their first year until they earn a full scholarship with the U.S. Navy. This is a requirement to continue through the program.

National Scholarship

The Four Year National Scholarship Program for Navy and Marine Corps Officers is available to incoming freshmen and students with less than 30 credit hours. The deadline for submission of your application is December 31st of your senior year in high school. The application window opens in June the year prior (summer before your senior year). The earlier you apply, the better your chances of attending your first choice school. Scholarships are nationally awarded based on a competitive selection process that considers such factors as high school GPA, class standing, ACT/SAT scores, extracurricular activities, physical fitness, leadership qualities and motivation. The scholarship covers tuition and fees, books, uniforms, and a $250 per month stipend your freshman year ($300 per month for sophomores, $350 for juniors and $400 for seniors). Tuskegee Naval ROTC DOES NOT accept 4 year national scholarship applications directly. Please check out the Naval Service Training Command website for more information on how to apply.

What should I expect when I get to Tuskegee University?

One of the first things that will happen when you arrive is NSO (New Student Orientation. NSO is a two day process where new Midshipmen will learn about how TUNROTC works as well as receive all necessary gear associated with the program.

What are the requirements of a Midshipmen?

Overall, being a Midshipmen means being held to a higher standard than normal college students. You must maintain a certain GPA of a 2.5, participate in unit functions, as well as pass the physical standards of the US Navy.

Do I have to go to bootcamp?

The short answer is no. The closest thing that NROTC program offers compared to "bootcamp" is New Student Indoctrination (NSI). NSI is where new Midshipmen travel to Naval Station Great Lakes. Here Midshipmen will go through an expeditious training program that teaches new comers the basics of military protocol and professionalism.

How many hours of NROTC activities are there during the average week?

Overall, this entirely depends on the Midshipmen command structure to both schedule and execute events. The events will vary with each week but for the most part the events will take place at times that work around Midshipmen's academics.

Can I participate in other extracurriculars found around campus?

Absolutely. One of the perks of coming to a university such as Tuskegee is the abundant opportunities that are offered at school. Some involve internships, work-study positions, clubs, and associations. The important thing to remember is that being a Midshipmen comes first. At the end of the day the whole point of you being here is to commission as a Naval Officer.

How much do I get paid in a month?

The Department of the Navy pays:
  • Tuition
  •  fees
  •  $375 per semester for textbooks
  • Tuskegee University currently pays full room and board in select residence halls for NROTC scholarship recipients.
Monthly Stipend (For those on scholarship):
  • Freshmen - $250
  •  Sophomores - $300
  • Juniors - $350
  • Seniors - $400

Do I need forms of ID or copies of my medical record?

Yes. One of the first things you do when you report to the unit is complete your documentation. Part of this process involves providing forms of ID (social security card, birth certificate, drivers license) as well as having up to date medical documents.

Can I bring my car to school?

Yes. When participating in some NROTC functions and living at Tuskegee, having a car is a very useful tool. For most of the functions having a method to get both on and off campus comes in handy.

Do I need to be enrolled or be accepted into the school prior to joining NROTC?

Yes. In order to be apart of the program all students must be registered and plan on attending the university.
