At the University of Illinois, midshipmen earn a top-tier education while training to become Navy and Marine Corps officers. With the +800 extra-curricular activities and incredible opportunities for professional growth, Illinois midshipmen are building the foundation for success in the fleet. 

Our mission is to educate and train qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. As the largest single source of Navy and Marine Corps officers, the NROTC scholarship program plays an important role in preparing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps.

Contact us today to learn about how you can accelerate your career through service and leadership.
