Future Navy and Marine Corps Officers of the RPI Unit attend either Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, Union College in Schenectady, NY, or the Nursing Program at Russell Sage College in Troy, NY. Our offices are located on the second and third floor of the Alumni Sports and Recreation Center on 15th Street on the RPI Campus.
Scholarship students receive up to four years of full scholarship benefits and a monthly stipend. Awards are based on an annual nationwide competition conducted by the Department of the Navy.
College program students receive basic benefits and are given the opportunity to become scholarship students.
