Express Scholarship Program

Express scholarships are available to cadets in select fields and year groups. The goal of the program is to meet US Air Force officer production requirements. Eligible majors and classes change each academic year. Contact the detachment to find out what majors are currently eligible for express scholarships.

Examples of degree programs that have been eligible for the Express Scholarship Program include:

  • Nursing
