ROTC Term Abroad Planning Considerations


Federal Financial Aid

Students are typically able to use their federal financial aid to study abroad. Students may use grants and loans that have already been awarded and may be eligible to take out additional loans based on the increase in their cost of attendance due to education abroad. All students must complete a financial aid form and meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss funding their education abroad program.

Norwich Universities’ Politi Scholarships

All students planning an education abroad experience are eligible to apply for the Politi Scholarship.   Preference will be given to students studying on Norwich programs and students studying in a country in which English is not the primary language, especially in Central and/or South America. The Dr. A. Francis Politi International Fund was established by Dr. Politi for the purpose of strengthening Norwich University’s capacity to produce graduates who have studied in other countries as a means of gaining a deeper understanding of other cultures, developing fluency in a foreign language, and generally enhancing their global perspectives.
