Welcome to the Bulldog Battalion!

Thank you for coming to explore NROTC opportunties at Yale!

The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Program was established to educate and train qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the US Navy (unrestricted line), or in the Marine Corps. As the largest single source of Navy and Marine Corps officers, the NROTC Scholarship Program fills a vital need in preparing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps.

We’d be happy to answer any question that you have about the NROTC program and how NROTC integrates into your life as a Yale student! If you’d like to speak with one of our staff officers, please fill out this form.

If you’d like the opportunity to speak with one of our current Midshipmen, please fill out this form and we will connect your with somewho who has similar interest!
