One of the ways you can enter the Navy during college is through the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) Scholarship program. It not only pays for school but also provides leadership training while you’re still in school. NROTC provides this money for up to 5 years of college. And you can apply for the program while you’re still in high school or college.
Through NROTC, you enter the Navy while you’re still in college but you still get to live the life of a normal college student. Your commitment while you’re still in school includes weekly drills, summer programs and opportunities to participate in community service projects. These activities will help prepare you for your future role as a leader and a Navy Officer.
