Department of Military Science


The Army offers several competitive, merit-based scholarships that include the following components:

  • Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
  • Full tuition and mandatory fees
  • The option to use scholarship funding for room and board instead of tuition, if qualified
  • Monthly stipend ($300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors and $500 for seniors. The stipend is also available to contracted, non-scholarship cadets)
  • $600 book allowance per semester

There are two ways to earn an Army ROTC scholarship:

  • Four-year national scholarship
    Students apply during their senior year of high school.
  • Campus-based scholarship
    Students apply after enrolling at Christopher Newport.

Cadets who choose the reserves or National Guard duty are eligible for a Guaranteed Reserve Duty Forces Scholarship/Contract.

Enlisted military personnel who wish to become officers can also earn scholarships through the Army’s Green to Gold Program.

Veterans can use the GI Bill at CNU.
