ROTC Scholarship enhacements

Marquette is honored to be a host institution for the Air Force, Army and Navy/Marine ROTC programs. Marquette has a longstanding affiliation with the U.S. armed forces.

Beginning as early as 1916, and solidifying in the late '30s and early '40s, Marquette ROTC students have learned to lead with their heads and their hearts. The leadership skills instilled by ROTC are further enhanced by the university's commitment to educating the whole person: physically, mentally and spiritually. Together, we shape morally fit leaders aware of their environment with a healthy respect for others.

Scholarship enhancement awards are given to three- and four-year ROTC scholarship recipients. For more information, contact Marquette's Air Force, Army or Navy ROTC units.

For additional program details about this award, review the applicable Award Information Guide, available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.

What happens if I leave the ROTC program?

If you leave the ROTC program, your ROTC enhancement will no longer be in effect. Your original Ignatius scholarships (if any) will be restored for the remainder of the term they are in effect (until your eighth semester) provided you maintain the requirements of the original scholarship.
