Your application will be reviewed and, unless otherwise specified in your selection letter, your scholarship will be awarded in conjunction with the academic major and tier specified in the NROTC Interests section of your application If the major specified in your application is in the LREC field, if selected, you will be awarded an LREC scholarship.

You must select five (5) choices for the college or university you want to attend on the NROTC scholarship. Each of your five (5) choices must be for a college/university at a different Naval ROTC Unit.

You must apply to, be accepted at, and enroll in your assigned school in order to utilize the scholarship.

Make sure you check the acknowledgement box underneath your college choices indicating you understand that you must apply to these college/university choices. We will do our best to place you at one of your top 3 choices, but we cannot guarantee such placement.
