NROTC Scholarships 

Students who participate in the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps program at JU may be eligible for NROTC scholarships awarded by the U. S. Navy (see “Division of Naval Science” in the College of Arts and Sciences section of the Catalog). Information about these scholarships programs may be requested from the Professor of Naval Science/Commanding Officer, JU NROTC Detachment.

  • The room and board scholarship will be reduced or eliminated if otherwise eligible recipients also qualify for additional federal, state, or outside scholarships or grants that would cause an individual’s total financial aid to exceed the cost of attendance determined by the Financial Aid Office

  • The off-campus stipend will be reduced or eliminated if otherwise eligible recipients also qualify for additional federal, state, or outside scholarships or grants that would cause the individual’s total financial aid to exceed the cost of attendance as determined by the Financial Aid Office.
