Air Force ROTC provides students with money to pay for school, valuable leadership skills and friendships that will last a lifetime.
AFROTC offers scholarships at over 1,000 universities, including $900 a year for books in addition to spending money. And best of all, you'll have the opportunity to land a leadership position in the U.S. Air Force right out of school. Your future could begin right here, right now.

- Have never been full-time college students

Notes for students considering applying for ROTC Programs:
Students interested in applying for any of the ROTC programs should start the process early. During their Junior year, students should begin planning to take their SAT or ACT tests. Completing at least one of these tests prior to the summer between Junior and Senior years will satisfy at least one of the application requirements. Students can still retake the tests and submit their subsequent scores.
The ROTC programs are competitive. To have the best opportunity to be competitive for these scholarships, applications should be completed and into the scholarship coordinators office for the respective scholarships before the start of your senior year. These scholarships are evaluated by boards periodically throughout the year. The first board of review for most of them (Navy, Army, and Air Force) generally takes place in August. The first board of review for the NROTC Marine Option scholarship is in November. In order to have the best chance of receiving a scholarship and to get your application before the most boards, having the application completed before the first board meets is the best course of action.
Application deadline is January 12.
