The Navy offers two main scholarship programs to 89 colleges and universities in the United States.
The four-year program offers full tuition, fees, and uniforms for students wishing to seek a career in the United States Navy and Marine Corps. In addition, the scholarship includes a book stipend to offset the cost of textbooks and a monthly allowance.
The two-year program is designed to pay for the last two years of college. This program pays for tuition, fees, textbooks and any necessary uniforms. Individuals in this program will also receive a monthly allowance.
Upon graduation, the individual will be commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy or as a Second Lieutenant in the Marine Corps for eight years, four of which must be served on active duty.
To apply for a four-year scholarship, please go to the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps website at https\www.nrotc.navy.mil for more application information and exact due dates. If you are not accepted for a four-year Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) scholarship, it is still possible for you to attend OSU as an Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps student. Just follow the application procedures above to become a college program student. If accepted as a college program student, you will be a member of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps Battalion while learning and training with us. You can be resubmitted for a three-year scholarship after your freshman year if you have good grades, good training habits, and have applied yourself well as part of the Beaver Battalion. We also have two-year scholarships available after your sophomore year, if needed.
If you have already accepted a four-year NSTC scholarship you will need to submit to us IMMEDIATELY your
Uniform Fitting Sheet (Male Uniform Fitting Sheet/Female Uniform Fitting Sheet).The uniform fitting sheet will need to be filled out by a qualified seamstress or tailor. If an alteration professional cannot be found in your community, ask your local cleaners if they have someone who can help you. The uniform sheet is extremely important because your uniforms are ordered before you come to New Student Orientation (NSO). For more information on what is required for NSO, please check out that page on our website.
Physical fitness is a must for all future officers. If you do not have a fitness plan, or would like to start a new Navy approved program please check out our work out plan.
