Several annual scholarships for high-school and undergraduate students offered by the Air Force ROTC to help them cover tuition and lab fees, along with an annual textbook allowance and monthly stipends from $300 to $500.
Air Force ROTC is a college program provided at more than 1100 colleges and universities in the United States. Its mission is to prepare future Air Force Officers and develop quality leaders while earning a college degree by providing opportunities to students to cover most of their educational expenses.
They offer a variety of scholarships to high-school seniors or undergraduate freshman students who are planning to enroll in an academic major related to technical fields relevant to Air Force ROTC. There are three currently available scholarship programs.
Type 1 includes full four-year college tuition, fees and book allowance and is created for students studying engineering, chemistry or meteorology. Type 2 includes college tuition fees up to $18000 and book allowance for students enrolled in technical programs too.
Type 7 can cover a tuition fee equivalent to a public school’s in-state rate and a book allowance. Besides the tuition, fees and book payments, all the scholarship recipients may receive a monthly stipend of $300 for freshmen, $350 for sophomores, $450 for juniors and $500 for seniors, together with travel refunding.
