BROADENED  OPPORTUNITY FOR  OFFICER  SELECTION AND  TRAINING  (BOOST) PROGRAM Academy The   BOOST   Program   supports   the   Navy’s Affirmative  Action  Plan  by  offering  enlisted  men  and women   a   comprehensive   program   of   academic preparation for successful pursuit of a Navy or Marine Corps commission through the NROTC Program or the USNA. The BOOST Program prepares selected applicants for  entry  into  the  NROTC  Scholarship  Program, NROTC  Scholarship  Program  Nurse  Corps  Option,  or USNA. Each BOOST graduate is offered an NROTC scholarship  or  an  appointment  to  the  USNA,  depending on individual qualifications. The BOOST Program provides an upward mobility opportunity to persons who have demonstrated qualities necessary for careers as unrestricted line naval officers, but whose past academic performance does not qualify them  for  immediate  selection  into  an  officer  accession program. As the BOOST Program is a significant part of   the   Navy   Affirmative   Action   Plan,   interested minority personnel are strongly encouraged to apply. The  BOOST  Program  is  located  at  the  Naval Education and Training Center, Newport, Rhode Island. This  program  consists  of  a  rigorous  12-month  college preparatory  curriculum  that  consists  of  mathematics, English, science, computer science, campus skills, and military  training. Upon  graduation  from  BOOST, individuals and/or the Navy have several options: .  If  the  graduate  accepts  an  NROTC  scholarship, he/she  is  released  from  active  duty  into  the  Naval Reserve and assigned to an NROTC unit. For NROTC scholarship recipients, university assignments are not determined until the last quarter of BOOST school. The individual  may  be  assigned  to  a  school  other  than his/her first choice if considered in the best interest of the selectee or the Navy. l  Nurse  Corps  option  selectees  must  attend  a university  that  offers  an  accredited  nursing  program. . If accepted by the USNA, the graduate reports to the academy for plebe summer indoctrination. For   additional   information   and   application procedures,   refer   to   Article   1020360   of   the MILPERSMAN.
