NATIONAL FOUR-YEAR SCHOLARSHIP

Recipients of National Four-Year scholarships are selected from applicants through a national competition. Applicants apply for either Navy Option or Marine option and selectees are appointed midshipmen in either the United States Naval Reserve (USNR) or United States Marine Corps Reserve (USMCR), as appropriate. Selectees also are granted the compensation and benefits authorized by law and current policy not to exceed four years (40 months or 50 months with approved fifth year benefits). During this period, the government pays for college tuition, authorized fees, a textbook stipend, a subsistence allowance as prescribed by law and Navy policy, and provides uniforms or compensation in lieu.
