- be eligible to receive some level of financial support from the Bowman Scholar Program to purchase requisite supplies and equipment and to underwrite any travel requirements associated with the research-based project undertaken by the Scholar during first-class year.
- have enhanced postgraduate education opportunities through technical master's degree programs at the Naval Postgraduate School that are specific to the Bowman Scholar Program.
- after graduation from the accelerated one-year master's degree program at NPS, earn an "I-Code" subspecialty. The obligated service is 5 years upon completion of the one-year master's degree at NPS, concurrent to other service obligations.
