Over 80% of Norwich University's Army ROTC juniors and seniors are on an Army ROTC Scholarship
The Army ROTC Scholarship pays full tuition and applicable fees, provides a $600 per semester book stipend, and a $420 per month Cadet stipend once the student contracts and activates the scholarship.
Any Army ROTC Cadet who receives any of the scholarships below automatically receives the General I.D. White scholarship from Norwich University, which covers full Room and Board - this constitutes a full ride for all semesters the Cadet is on an ROTC Scholarship.
FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS - National ROTC Scholarship:
3- or 4-year scholarships are available that cover full tuition and fees for the period of the scholarship
To apply for the Army ROTC scholarship complete the following:
Step 1 - Create your Army account.
- Upload HS transcript and College Board scores
- Complete all biographic information and write an Applicant Personal Statement and Applicant Essay
- Download Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) form and have PE instructor, JROTC instructor, coach, or Army recruiter administer the test and upload the form
- Conduct an interview with a Professor of Military Science. This step is completed after all other steps. The PMS with whom you conduct your interview does not have to be with a college/university to which you are applying. Your performance in the interview will be factored into whether you earn a scholarship. The PMS with whom you conduct your interview has no influence on earning a scholarship.
Campus-based scholarships are merit-based. There is no application for campus-based ROTC scholarships. Cadets compete for these scholarships and based on the Army’s whole person concept of Scholar, Athlete, and Leader. Students will be evaluated on:
- College GPA weighted by academic major
- ROTC GPA
- Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) score
- Extracurricular athletics and activities
- Assistant Professor of Military Science (APMS) assessment
Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty Scholarship (GRFD):
Same merit-based scholarship opportunity as a campus-based scholarship but requires active participation in the National Guard or Army Reserve. This is an excellent option for students who desire to serve in the Reserve Component upon graduating college.
