Alden Partridge Army ROTC Scholarship
Norwich University is proud to announce the Alden Partridge Army ROTC Scholarship. This scholarship is available to three-year Army ROTC scholarship recipients and pays the full cost of tuition and fees as well as room and board.
The Citizen Soldier and the Legacy of Leadership:
Captain Alden Partridge graduated from Dartmouth College and the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he went on to serve as Superintendent. After leaving West Point, Captain Partridge founded Norwich University in 1819 because he believed that military training was essential for the creation of “moral, patriotic, efficient and useful citizens”. Norwich University is the oldest private military college in the United States, is the birthplace of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) and has produced some of the most highly decorated military leaders in the history of this country.
Norwich University continues in the tradition of our founder as we seek to identify and promote students who are committed to leadership and service. In addition to the Alden Partridge Army ROTC Scholarship, which is awarded during the freshman year, all students who receive the Army ROTC three-year scholarship (which covers tuition and fees), will also be awarded the General ID White Scholarship which will cover the cost of room and board for the remaining three years of study. The General ID White Scholarship has an annual value of approximately $15,000.
A student receiving the Alden Partridge Army ROTC Scholarship, the Army ROTC three-year scholarship and the General ID White scholarship receives combined scholarships valued at approximately $250,000.
