Scholarship Results

  • Received

    If you receive a scholarship offer, you will be required to complete and pass a medical exam and meet Air Force ROTC physical requirements in order to keep the offer. Once you have decided to accept the scholarship offer, the Air Force ROTC detachment at your selected school will provide further guidance on the actions required for the fall term of your first semester of college. Additionally, should you accept the scholarship and continue with Air Force ROTC past your freshman year, you will be obligated to serve in the U.S. Air Force or Space Force upon graduation. (NOTE: The length of your service commitment is dependent on your designated career field.)

  • Did Not Receive

    If you did not receive a scholarship offer, you may still participate in Air Force ROTC as a non-scholarship student. Non-scholarship Air Force ROTC students are still able to become officers in the U.S. Air Force or Space Force as long as they earn a bachelor’s degree and meet all AFROTC requirements.
