Are the 4 year scholarships awarded to a specific unit as opposed to a specific school? Because on the NROTC website (I'm also applying for that scholarship as well) it says to list schools from different units and then you can choose which school you want in that unit, if you get accepted of course. So when it says to list 10 schools on the AROTC application, should I refrain from putting schools in the same unit? The part from the NROTC website I was referring to is on the Scholarship Checklist where it says: "Five college choices The Naval ROTC Scholarship is awarded to a specific Naval ROTC Unit. The Unit resides at a host school and there may be affiliated schools within the local commuting area. You must select 5 choices for the college or university you want to attend on the NROTC scholarship. One of your choices must be a public state college/university, but you do not have to qualify for "in-state" tuition at that school. Each of your 5 choices must be for a college/university at 5 different Naval ROTC Units. There are only 70 units. Many of the units have cross-town colleges or universities associated with its primary college or university (see www.nrotc.navy.mil for a listing of Naval ROTC Units and associated colleges and universities). You may not select a unit more than once; this includes the crosstowns. For example, if you select Drexel, you may not select the University of Pennsylvania as another of your choices. College choices are used for initial placement at particular NROTC unit only. If you are awarded a scholarship, you may use it at any of the affiliated schools with that NROTC unit. You are still responsible for applying to and being accepted for admission to the college/universities that you indicate for the Naval ROTC scholarship. Placement at a unit does not guarantee you admission to that college. We strongly suggest that you apply to all five of your listed choices as well as any affiliated schools which you might also like to attend. We will do our best to place you at one of your top 3 choices, but we cannot guarantee such placement. There is also a possibility that we will be unable to place you at any of your listed choices and may contact you at a future date for additional choices. Please let us know how strongly you feel about your choices and the order in which you have placed them."
