Special Notice to High School Students Competing for Navy or Marine ROTC Scholarships at ERAU

ERAU is a popular choice with high school students fortunate enough to earn a Navy or Marine scholarship. The Navy assigns these scholarships based on the preferences you provide on your scholarship application.  However, only a limited number of scholarships go to each institution with a NROTC program. Consequently, the ERAU NROTC program is typically at capacity after the early scholarship selection boards are complete. Our recommendation for students competing for an NROTC scholarship at ERAU is to have your entire scholarship application complete prior to the beginning of your senior year in high school.
