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.
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).
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*
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.
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.
