Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)
ROTC is a college leadership program sponsored by the U.S. Military. Offered by all branches of the military except the Coast Guard, ROTC awards qualified students full-tuition scholarships as well as monthly stipends. ROTC students become commissioned officers upon graduation and fulfill an eight-year service obligation in the U.S. Armed Forces.
ROTC students receive curricular and field training in military science. Typical requirements include three hours of classroom instruction and three hours of physical fitness training per week, a one-hour weekly leadership lab, and one weekend field-training exercise per semester. ROTC courses do not transfer back to Brown and do not count toward degree requirements. ROTC courses taken after July 2015 are noted on the Brown transcript as non-credit courses.
ROTC programs for the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Air Force are available to Brown students through partnerships with nearby universities. For more information, please see Commissioning Programs at the Office of Student Veterans and Commissioning Programs.
More information about the Army ROTC program at Providence College can be found on the Patriot Battalion website. Interested students may also contact ROTC at (401) 865-2025 or email@example.com.
Established in 1996 through the generosity of Charles Royce, '61, the Royce Fellowship supports Brown undergraduates as they carry out independent community-engaged research projects of their own design in locations across the United States and around the world. Fellows conduct their research under the supervision of a faculty member and as part of an interdisciplinary cohort of students from across the university.
