Reserve Officers Training Corps – ROTC
The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is a great officer path option for those interested in experience military training who still want to attend a civilian college. They can explore specific military branches by enrolling in ROTC programs provided by the Air Force, Army, or Navy.
Senior Military Colleges
Senior Military Colleges (SMCs) are among the most prestigious and famous education institutions in the world, and they offer financial aid packages for eligible students. Every cadet must participate in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.
Cadets who receive an ROTC scholarship are required to enter military service following graduation.
Military Service Academies
Military Service Academies offer full scholarships (tuition, housing, textbooks) in return for a five-year service commitment after graduation.
An additional option for students is Maritime Academies. The United States Merchant Marine is the fleet of civilian-owned merchant ships that transport cargo and passengers on behalf of the United States. In times of war, the Merchant Marine is an auxiliary to the Navy and can be called upon to deliver service members and supplies for the Military.
Maritime Academies also produce shipboard officers for vessels integral to shipping and transportation needs, but a service commitment is not always required.
