Re:  2025 OTS Scholarship Program

Each year, GD-OTS partners with the National Merit Scholar Corporation to offer two $1,000 scholarships to the OTS community. The scholarship amount equates to $1,000 a year, for up to 4 years, at an accredited U.S. college/university.
The entry deadline for the 2025 GD-OTS Scholarship Program is March 31, 2024. The 2025 Scholarship entry is open to OTS employees’ children, who meet the following requirements:

  • Currently attending a U.S. high school.
  • Currently in their junior year, entering college in the fall of 2025.
  • Has completed the PSAT/NMSQT exam (administered in Oct. 2023); semifinalists are selected based on the student’s junior year PSAT/NMSQT test scores.

To enter your child into the 2025 General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Scholarship Program, should they meet the above requirements, please use this link and complete the following steps of the Entry Form process:

If you are called into a meeting with a management representative and you have reason to believe that disciplinary action against you or other member’s may result, you have the right to have a steward present during this meeting. Read the statement below to the management representative, and contact your steward immediately.


“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined
or terminated,
or affect my personal working conditions,
I request that my union representative,
officer, or steward be
present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not

to answer any question.”

“This is my right under a U.S. Supreme Court decision
called Weingarten Rights.”
