What Makes an Exceptional Applicant
Once your application has been submitted and your interview has been completed, your information is moved before the Air Force ROTC scholarship selection boards.
The boards, based on officer potential and the "whole person" concept, will then rate you on the following criteria:
- Leadership and work experience
- Extracurricular activities
- Results from your personal interview
- Questionnaire results
- Academic scores
These factors, along with the needs of the Air Force, will determine your merit for a four-year scholarship and the type of scholarship offered.
The scholarship selection boards are made up of senior Air Force officers. After the board evaluates all of the applications, you are ranked in order of board scores. Scholarships are then offered in board rank order, based on the needs of the Air Force. Results of scholarship boards are normally released within 15 days after completion of a board.
Once you have been offered a scholarship and are physically qualified, you will receive further guidance from your Air Force ROTC unit for the fall term.
