NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS

NAME DESCRIPTION DUE DATE
(For Juniors, Class of 2022)

The Coolidge Scholarship is a full-ride, four-year, merit scholarship that may be used by recipients for undergraduate study at any accredited college or university in the United States. Any high school junior who plans to enroll in college in the fall of 2022 and is an American citizen or legal permanent resident is eligible to apply (current high school seniors are not eligible to apply).

Alert: the application requires that applicants read President Coolidge’s Autobiography and complete a few other reading assignments. While the book is not overly long, we encourage applicants to begin the application early so that they have plenty of time. Candidates who begin the application at the last minute are unlikely to be successful.

This online application is extensive and may require several hours to complete. You are able to start the application and save your progress as you complete each section. We have provided an Application Information Checklist to assist you in gathering information and to streamline the process of applying for a scholarship.

Download an Application Information Checklist PDF

Applicants must enter five Navy ROTC affiliated colleges or universities in their scholarship application. If selected, we will try to place your scholarship at your first choice school, but due to limits on the number of scholarships that may be placed at each NROTC school, your scholarship may be placed at your second through fifth choice school. The scholarship offer is for a specific school and may not be used at any other NROTC school without prior approval. You must apply to, be accepted at, and enroll in your assigned school in order to utilize the scholarship. Applying to more than just your first choice school will increase the chances for acceptance and enrollment and will therefore increase the opportunities to use a scholarship if selected.

Each applicant must also select an academic program in which he or she intends to major. All academic programs fall into three tiers relative to the Navy’s technical needs.

Scholarships will be awarded to a NROTC school in conjunction with the academic major and tier the applicant specified on their application. If offered the scholarship, the student is expected to attend the school where their scholarship is placed. If you no longer desire or are not admitted to the school where your scholarship is placed, you may request a change of placement to move your scholarship to another school. If that school has room for another scholarship, we will move your scholarship to that school. If not, you may request to be placed on that school’s wait-list and we will try to move your scholarship there if room becomes available. Requests are processed and approved by the NROTC Placement Office. The student must be mindful if they choose a cross-town school that there may be cross-town commuting costs and class timing issues which will need to be resolved. The school you are enrolled in must support the academic major or equivalent for which the scholarship was awarded. Also, the student must have applied for admission to and been accepted at any school they wish to utilize the scholarship.
