    Is there a Navy or Army 2-Year Program still in existence? Friend is a Junior at a major University, but doesn't want to stay an extra year for AFROTC's 3-Year Program.

    Navy NROTC 2yr scholarships very limited due to budget cuts. Friend needs to talk with local NROTC and AROTC folks.

    What about non-scholarship programs?

    I believe the navy has was ia called "contract" - used to be for 3yr, 2yr maybe even 1yr - not called scholarship unless one enters with 4yr plan. Since my son received 4yr scholarship 2 yrs ago, My understanding, just antedotely, is that the contract guys get same stipend and tutition etc for those years remaining. I do not know how many of these are available this year or in future - as people have said, because of budget cuts and reduction in force thoughts - It would be best to go to source - unit at the college one is at - for the up to the minute info on availability and pros and cons. I believe one seek a commission at graduation timeframe, without being contracted or scholarship.

    LTC is available for Army, 4 week camp = first two years of ROTC. Slots have been cut in half this year because that year group is projected to over produce. If your friend is a strong candidate he would have a chance to go this summer. Another option would be to enlist and go to Basic Training this summer and do the SMP program. He's got some options, but his timing could be better.
