The Navy ROTC has announced their four-year scholarship, worth up to $180,000 for those signing on for Navy or Navy Nurse training.
The scholarship covers everything from full tuition, textbooks and incidental student fees and uniforms to a living allowance of $250 a month and summer stipend, which increases every academic year.
There is no obligation to commit to the Navy until your sophomore year in college, and the scholarship can be refused. Nurses compete only with other nurse applicants. The application is not a full commitment, so applicants have nothing to lose by applying.

Applicants must be 17 years old by September 1st of the first year of college and younger than 23 on June 30th of that same year (specific exemptions for prior military). Applicants must be physically qualified and in good health, and can be a high school junior in their second semester, senior, or possess a high school diploma or equivalency certificate.
