ROTC scholarships cover the full cost of tuition and fees at each of the three schools represented at the Old Ironsides Battalion. Students may apply for a scholarship during the second semester of their junior year of high school; the selection process is similar to a college application and includes letters of recommendation, essays, and interviews. Applicants may apply for a Navy Option, Marine Option, or Nurse Option scholarship (though Old Ironsides Battalion hosts only Navy and Marine Option midshipmen). Students are selected on the basis of superior academic achievement, leadership potential, and interest in naval careers.
Selection for an NROTC scholarship does not guarantee admission to the college of your choice; you must apply and be accepted separately by the university you wish to attend.
