  • Naval ROTC

Beginning in Fall 2017, Clark Atlanta University will offer annual Room and Board scholarships for Naval ROTC to select students on a full NROTC tuition scholarship.  Students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Financial Aid                 Office prior to having funds deposited in to their account.  The Room and Board scholarship is capped at the value of a double room and a full meal plan as designated by CAU. The Room and Board scholarship will be reduced or eliminated by any state, federal, or           outside scholarships or grants the student receives that would cause the total financial aid to exceed the cost of attendance as determined by CAU. The NROTC tuition scholarship and the CAU Room and Board scholarship replaces any other CAU financial aid                     awarded prior to notification and acceptance of the aforementioned scholarships. 

*Please note all institutional scholarships and discounts require a completed FAFSA, full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress.
