Aside from the monthly stipend, is there a textbook reimbursement for the midshipmen?
Per @navypmw Stipend, not reimbursement. You get the same $$$ no matter how much your textbooks cost. To save money, used books, amazon textbook rentals or chegg are almost always less expensive than the university bookstore.There is a textbook stipend of $750 per year or $375 per semester.
I don't recall my son getting it in time for any semester. I only fronted first semester after being awarded a scholarship though, as I recall. Savings from summer jobs and what he set aside from stipend covered up front costs the rest of the way. Made him learn a little about money management.When do they get the stipend? I saw an official looking letter posted on the Facebook NROTC page yesterday that said you won't get it in time for books the first semester? Does anyone know?
