Air Force ROTC scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. High school students can apply online. Selection for scholarships is largely based on the needs of the Air Force and the following:
- ACT or SAT scores
- Class ranking
- Advanced placement or honors courses completed through grade 11
- School or community leadership involvement
- Scholarship interview with an Air Force officer
- Physical fitness test score
- Anticipated college major
Note: Being awarded a scholarship while in high school is not a prerequisite for entry into the ROTC program. Most ROTC cadets do not start the program with a high school scholarship. These students can compete for an in-college scholarship (pending availability of funds). Selection for these scholarships is also competitive and is based on overall performance.
Students studying engineering, math, computer science, and certain physical sciences greatly increase their odds of receiving a scholarship.
For more information on scholarships, contact Detachment 400 or visit the US Air Force ROTC high school scholarships website.
