For students pursuing a military career, ROTC scholarships help cover costs, but commit you to serve in the armed forces. These scholarships are applied to through the branch or branches of interest, not Norwich University, and are highly competitive on a national scale.
ROTC provides money to cover some tuition and uniform expenses as well as a monthly stipend. A student bringing an ROTC scholarship to Norwich will also be awarded the I.D. White Scholarship, which covers room and board.
If your son or daughter applies for an ROTC scholarship, you should still complete the FAFSA.
For more information, or to start the ROTC scholarship process, go to the website for the branch(es) or interest. You will need to start the process by spring of the student’s junior year, as it takes time.
