Air Force ROTC can help you prepare for your future while you get the most out of your college experience.
Each semester, scholarship recipients receive stipends to cover tuition and fees, books and other expenses and extra spending money.
Upon activation, all scholarship cadets receive a monthly living expense stipend during the academic year. Currently, the monthly stipend is $300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors and $500 for seniors.
All high school scholarship recipients are authorized to have their travel expenses covered from their home to their Air Force ROTC detachment. They will receive reimbursement approximately 30 days after the start of school.
Three-year scholarship recipients will not receive any benefits until the beginning of their sophomore year.
