Program & Event History
ROTC Day is a component of LLNL's Military Academic Research Associates (MARA) ROTC Intern program. The ROTC Intern program provides hands-on internship opportunities to undergraduate cadets and midshipmen. Additionally, research assignments may be available for cadets and midshipmen who finish their course requirements early, prior to starting their military obligations. Recent participants have used their experiences for senior thesis projects and academic research papers for credit, and have co-authored papers. During past summers, LLNL hosted approximately seven to ten ROTC interns each year.
Attendance & Travel
Participation in ROTC Day will be on a first come, first served basis, and is restricted to US citizens.
There are no restrictions to the number of cadets and midshipmen within driving distance who wish to participate in ROTC Day.
Detachments or units traveling from outside of California who request travel assistance will be limited to five (including Officers and faculty) individuals. LLNL will fund airfare and shuttle costs (see Travel link for details).
Groups from outside of California may bring more than five participants, but should expect to pay for their travel expenses.
Registration forms are available by selecting the Registration Form link. Forms must include full name, social security number, date and place of birth, and should be returned by fax ONLY no later than February 6, 2014. For additional travel information and details, please see the Travel link.

Cameras, cell phones (particularly with cameras) and recording devices are NOT allowed on the tours or in some buildings, and will be collected (to be returned at the end of the day) if brought on-site. Items of this nature can be left in cars or on the shuttle bus.
