In 2001, The UNC NROTC Alumni Association established the scholarship program as a key element of charitable support for
the UNC NROTC Alumni Association. From 2001-2015 the Association has conferred 26 scholarships totaling $21,500.00
to Midshipmen in the program.
As currently structured, the Association presents up to three $1,000 scholarships to selected Midshipman Third
Class (sophomore) recipients. The recipients are selected by a committee, two members of which are appointed by the Commanding Officer
of the NROTC Consortium, and one member of that committee will be either the chairman of the UNC NROTC Alumni Association's Scholarship
Committee or a designee. The award is customarily presented at the UNC NROTC Alumni Association Annual Meeting, held each fall, usually
on a home football game weekend. Payments are made directly to the recipient, and are without restriction.
