Attending college is an expensive investment. AFROTC scholarships can pay for your tuition, books, and provide a monthly stipend to help with other expenses.

If you are in high school, you can apply for the high school scholarship at the following link before December of your Senior year:
After your first semester in the program, we will consider offering you a merit-based scholarship based on your major, GPA, test scores and performance in the program. High demand majors, such the Sciences, Engineering and Nursing, will be given greater consideration, however a percentage of other majors earn scholarships as well.
