ROTC Scholarships Are Coming Up Short In North Dakota

the state no longer has enough money to cover a shortfall created by both tuition increases and a decline in federal support

Some National Guard students attending North Dakota colleges on ROTC scholarships are scrambling to find ways to stay in school.

The students were expecting free tuition that for years has been covered by a combination of federal and state funds.

The Guard’s education services officer says the state no longer has enough money to cover a shortfall created by both tuition increases and a decline in federal support.

The ROTC changes affect about 60 undergraduate cadets and 35 graduate students, most of whom attend NDSU.
