The NROTC Guide is the authoritative, first-to-market comprehensive guide to all aspects of the NROTC program.
Written specifically for the audience most important to the health and vibrancy of the program-talented young men and women potentially interested in a career as an officer in the naval service. On an average year, the NROTC program commissions almost a quarter of the Navy's active duty officer accessions, approximately equal to the number commissioned by the US Naval Academy. While myriad works exist describing the Annapolis experience, there is currently no book-format guide to the NROTC program, the application process, college life as an NROTC midshipmen, commissioning options, etc.
Thus, this guide fills an information gap in an increasingly competitive market for America's talented youth.
As a guide on the program, most of the book focuses on the NROTC program from the prospective midshipman's perspective.
Up-to-date information on program requirements, application process, selection board, scholarship benefits, and affiliated schools are covered in detail.
Anecdotes and personal experiences from both current and former NROTC midshipmen are integrated throughout the text to help bring to life the incredible opportunities available and the unique advantages of seeking a commission through the NROTC program.
For those young men and women currently in college, the book details opportunities available to receive NROTC scholarships each semester.
Chapters are included detailing non-programmatic matters such as an "average" day in an NROTC midshipman's college life, challenges, and practical advice for success in the program. Finally, the work will include material discussing the career opportunities available to midshipmen along with information focused on the questions of parents, high school guidance counselors, and loved ones of young men and women considering a career in the naval service.
Striking graphics and images complement the text and provide a vibrant, colorful guide sure to attract bright young man and women interested in the naval services.
