ASCP offers RegAF enlisted personnel the opportunity to earn a commission while completing their bachelor’s degree as an AFROTC cadet. Scholarships range from two (2) to four (4) years in length. Participants receive payment for tuition and scholarship fees, an annual textbook allowance, and a monthly stipend when the scholarship is activated. AFROTC scholarships do not pay for room and board costs.
SOAR allocates scholarship quotas to MAJCOMs, field operating agencies and direct-reporting units for outstanding RegAF Airmen. If qualified and selected by the AFROTC board, Airmen and Guardians receive scholarships to a college or university offering AFROTC for a time period ranging from two (2) to four (4) years. Commanders are encouraged to seek out their strongest performers with exceptional potential, motivating them to complete college degrees and be commissioned through AFROTC. RegAF personnel are discharged from the RegAF and enlisted in the AFR-Obligated Reserve Section to accept the scholarships and enroll in AFROTC.
