ROTC cadets take advantage of special opportunities, some of which are available even without a military commitment.
Scholarships, tuition and housing waivers, and monthly stipends can help you fund your NIU education. Federal, state and university funds are available for ROTC participants.
As an ROTC cadet, you can select from several summer training opportunities. From Basic Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, to U.S. Army Airborne School in Fort Benning, Georgia, to internships within the Army, you’ll have the chance to sample aspects of military life while advancing your Army training.
