Air Force ROTC Scholarship
A “crosstown” agreement with the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, opened up a U.S. Air Force training program to Trine students for the first time in the fall semester 2007.
The agreement with the U.S. Air Force ROTC provides a training program one day a week at the University of Notre Dame, leading to a military commission as a 2nd Lieutenant upon graduation.
- If you earn a Type 2 ROTC tuition scholarship valued at $18,000 annually, your Trine merit-based tuition scholarship will be added on top, not to exceed full tuition, provided you continue in good academic standing and maintain the requirements of your ROTC scholarship. Note: ROTC and Trine merit scholarships are tuition-only awards and cannot be applied to room and board.
- If you earn a Type 7 ROTC scholarship, Trine will provide you an $18,000 Trine/ROTC Tuition Scholarship in your first year, which replaces your previous lower-valued Trine University tuition merit scholarship. In your second, third and fourth year of school, the full value of your Trine merit-based tuition scholarship will be restored and added on top of your $18,000 ROTC scholarship, but not to exceed tuition. Note: ROTC and Trine merit scholarship are tuition-only awards and cannot be applied to room and board.
In addition, Trine students participating in the ROTC program who did not enter with an ROTC scholarship can apply in their freshman and sophomore years. It is not just first-year students who can receive scholarships! Current students may receive Type 2 ($18,000/year) scholarships after meeting the eligiblity requirements. ROTC Scholarship information can be viewed the ROTC website at https://www.afrotc.com/. Opens in ne.
Trine students attend the ROTC classes and leadership lab at the University of Notre Dame on Tuesday afternoons and evenings. Transportation is provided by Trine.
