NROTC Scholarship Opportunity
A Letter From Captain Steve J. Noppenberger USMC
High School Seniors,
You may be competitive for a college scholarship through the NROTC Scholarship program. In short, the scholarship provides you with full tuition, military training, and is followed by a commission as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. I earned this scholarship myself in 2008, and since then I have had the opportunity to lead Marines all over the globe, most recently in Sicily, Germany, and Spain. As the current Program Manager for NROTC, I want to ensure I give everyone in our community a fair shake, as my GPA, participation in sports, and earning my Eagle Scout definitely helped make me competitive for this scholarship and has repeatedly set me up for success far beyond High School and College.
In order to compete, you must:
- Be a Senior in High School
- Be physically fit (4 pull-ups, 100 crunches, 22 min. 3 mile run)
- Have a strong academic background (1000 SAT, 22 ACT, 74 ASVAB) -Have strong leadership abilities
The deadline for the NROTC selection board for the year is coming up fast:
October 8th, 2018.
If you are interested, you will need to knock out your application as soon as possible.
