ROTC Scholarships in each branch of the armed forces provide funding to cover full or partial tuition, fees, book expenses and a monthly expense allowance. Students completing this program are commissioned as officers in their respective branch of the armed forces upon graduation. Assistance to cover the room and board expenses of some ROTC scholarship recipients is provided by the Tulane Cooperative Room and Board Scholarship to undergraduate Tulane students.
Students who are offered both a Tulane merit scholarship and an ROTC scholarship must choose which scholarship is most advantageous to them. A student accepting an ROTC scholarship will forfeit Tulane merit scholarship when the ROTC scholarship is activated. However, students receiving an ROTC scholarship can receive the Tulane Cooperative Room and Board Scholarship in some cases (see more details below). In addition, students receiving a partial ROTC tuition scholarship may receive Tulane ROTC Supplemental Tuition Scholarship in the amount of 20 percent tuition or the amount of forfeit Tulane merit tuition scholarship minus the ROTC tuition scholarship, whichever is greater.
Other financial aid, including any Tulane need-based Scholarship, is recalculated in light of awarded ROTC scholarship and any Tulane scholarship made to supplement the ROTC scholarship.
For more information, students should contact the commanding officer at Tulane for the particular service in which they are interested:
