ROTC Scholarships + Additional


Oct 17, 2023
Hi I just won a scholarship to a school but I also am applying to get an NROTC scholarship there, I was just wondering if they would affect each other and what would happen with any access money?
There is about 100 different variables that can affect if one scholarship will supersede the NROTC. Is the school scholarship merit based or need based? Can it be applied to tuition, room and board, both? Depends on the school...private, public. The list goes on and on.

Your best bet is to reach out to the college's financial aid department to answer this question. Different schools handle scholarships differently. One school might be easy to navigate this issue. Another might have all kinds of requirements for this situation.
I was able to combine my private scholarship (local organization)’s $1000 a year check with my NROTC one. That covered my books along with the NROTC stipend. Additionally, I got my school’s merit scholarship which they applied to room and board (which only some schools do). Need a lot more clarity to help you w your answer
