Frederick C. Branch Marine Corps Leadership Scholarship


THE FREDERICK C. BRANCH LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIP Program is named in honor of the first African American Marine Corps officer who was commissioned as a second lieutenant (2ndLt) on 10 November 1945.  It is available at 17 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) affiliated with NROTC.  The Four-Year program is open to civilians and Marines and the three and two year program is open to civilians and College Program Midshipmen that are attending or have been accepted and will attend a NROTC affiliated HBCU.  This program is not open to U.S. Navy Scholarship Midshipmen or Marines in an Active Reserve status.  Any eligible male or female of any race or ethnic background may be awarded a Frederick C. Branch Scholarship.  Eligibility is determined primarily by attendance at an HBCU.  Scholarships and benefits are the same as those of any NROTC Marine Option Scholarship student.
