The Navy announced a new scholarship program for students who don’t quite make the minimum scores (SAT/ACT) to qualify for the  NAVY OFFICER ROTC PROGRAM SCHOLARSHIP. Students must be able to pass a Navy Physical Fitness test (1.5 mile run, push ups, sit ups). The new program will pay 100% of college costs (tuition and room and board) for one full year for accepted students at any college that supports the program. Students are automatically enrolled into the Navy ROTC program at that school with a full 4-year Navy ROTC scholarship after successfully completing the initial year.
