National Navy-Marine Corps Scholarships
The Department of the Navy pays tuition, fees, $375 per semester for textbooks, and provides a monthly stipend. Freshmen on scholarship receive $250, sophomores $300, juniors $350, and seniors $400 per month. Active duty pay for summer training is approximately $560 per month with living quarters and meals provided. Tuskegee University currently pays full room and board for all NROTC scholarship recipients.
Although the program emphasizes engineering and science majors, students may enroll in any Tuskegee University major leading to a baccalaureate degree. Navy Option scholarship students must complete two differential calculus and two calculus-based physics courses prior to the end of their Junior year. Navy Option summer activities include two at-sea training cruises and one summer of career orientation lasting about four weeks each.
Marine Option students report to the Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, CA, in lieu of the second summer cruise and attend Officer Candidate School in Quantico, VA, their final summer before graduation.
All scholarship students may resign without obligation any time prior to the beginning of their second year in the program. Successful completion of the NROTC program leads to a commission as an Ensign, U.S. Navy or Second Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps.
