GMC to offer Naval Reserves Office Training Corps (NROTC) Preparatory Program Scholarship
Georgia Military College Partners with the Naval Service Training Command to offer Naval Reserves Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Preparatory Program Scholarship
Georgia Military College (GMC) has partnered with the U.S. Naval Service Training Command to provide candidates with the opportunity to earn a Commission in the U.S. Navy through the Naval Reserves Officers Training Corps (NROTC) by participating in a NROTC Preparatory Program (NPP). This “bridge” initiative is a one-year program for qualified individuals interested in competing for a NROTC scholarship at one of the participating partner institutions, now including Georgia Military College.
This expanded relationship between the Navy and the schools that host preparatory programs offers a performance-based pathway for candidates to earn a NROTC scholarship. The NPP at GMC is a year-long program where students participate in the GMC Corps of Cadets on the main campus in Milledgeville and is designed to improve midshipman candidates’ academic and life skills to prepare for the rigorous NROTC academic program at one of the partner institutions. Upon successfully completing the one-year NPP, cadets are eligible to compete for a NROTC scholarship that provides full tuition and fees or room and board along with other benefits at one of the participating four-year partner institutions.
The program is designed for individuals who have the desire to serve our nation in the U.S. Navy and demonstrate exceptional leadership potential through academics, character, and extra-curricular activities, but were not accepted into a four-year institutional NROTC program.
“This program will further GMC in offering hope and opportunity to cadets wanting to serve our nation in the world’s greatest Navy,” says GMC Commandant of Cadets, Colonel Steve Pitt. “We’re proud to provide this pathway for our nation’s future leaders.”
Qualified cadets must meet all organizational requirements to enter a NROTC program and be academically accepted to the participating partner institution. The Naval Service Training Command is the final approval authority to award a NROTC scholarship.
