At Norwich University, we strive to acknowledge the abilities and accomplishments of our students through a variety of scholarships and awards.
Scholarships are awarded on a funds-available basis, and all students who apply are evaluated for eligibility to receive merit-based scholarships. This includes his or her high school grade-point average (GPA). For the 2018-2019 academic year, our primary scholarship awards range in value from $12,000 to $24,000 per year. Eligibility for scholarship is based on cumulative grade point average on prior academic achievement. These scholarships are awarded as follows:
Up to $25,000.00 per year for four years.
Up to $23,000.00 per year for four years.
Up to $19,000.00 per year for four years.
Up to $18,000.00 per year for four years.
Academic Recognition Scholarship
Up to $12,000.00 per year for four years.
Civil Air Patrol Scholarship
The National Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Scholarship is valued at $20,000, payable at $5,000 per year and will be awarded to cadets who have served for one or more years in a position of leadership as a member of the Civil Air Patrol. This scholarship is available to all qualified Civil Air Patrol cadets. To apply for the National CAP Scholarship, cadets must submit a Letter of Recommendation from their Wing and/or Unit Commander with their application for admissions and be accepted as a member of the Norwich University Corps of Cadets. To renew the scholarship each year Cadets are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or above.
Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) programs exist at hundreds of colleges and universities, however, Norwich University has been recognized as the birthplace of the program.
Some students seek ROTC scholarships before they attend college, which helps cover all or most of tuition and fees (each service branch covers different expenses). Prospective students are encouraged to apply to all branches. Those who wish to serve their country should try every possible path!
Your job is to ask questions, gather information and put your name out there. If you're not chosen straight out of high school, don't stop trying! There are plenty of chances to compete for scholarships and commissioning opportunities once college has started.
Students who become eligible for ROTC funding after being notified of their initial merit scholarship and grant eligibility will have their Norwich gift aid funding revised. In recognition of ROTC participation, and during periods of enrollment in which ROTC funding that covers the full amount of tuition and fees is received, the Norwich University ID White Scholarship is provided to pay for on-campus room and board charges. Federal Pell Grant eligible students retain their Pell Grant in addition to their ROTC funding. Students do not retain their merit scholarship in addition to the ROTC, I.D. White, and Pell Grant. Students whose ROTC funding covers less than the full amount of tuition and fees may be eligible for a portion of their merit scholarship. For more information, please contact Financial Aid.
