The objective of the Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps (AFROTC) program is to provide a college-level education and qualify students for commissioning as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force. AFROTC is also nationally recognized by universities and employers alike as a highly successful leadership program! The first two years are obligation free unless you accept a scholarship, which would have to be paid back monetarily or with military service.
After enrolling in the AFROTC program and meeting AFROTC academic, fitness (to include medical) and military standards, you may be nominated to compete in the AFROTC In-College Scholarship Program (ICSP) when it becomes available. The ICSP selection boards meet in the fall term for our second-year AFROTC cadets and in the spring term for our first-year AFROTC cadets. ICSP scholarships are given primarily to students majoring in critical technical degrees (electrical engineering, computer engineering, nuclear engineering, and meteorology), other technical degrees, nursing, and selected foreign languages. If nominated and awarded a scholarship, you may be entitled to $900 a year for books and a monthly stipend between $300-$500 per month. So try our program out now to prepare your application as it will take a couple of months to complete!
