Scholarships

  • National Air Force ROTC Scholarships

    Nationwide four-year Air Force ROTC scholarships are available to entering freshmen. These Air Force scholarships pay full tuition and fees and a book allowance, plus a monthly tax-free subsistence depending on school-year classification.

    Applications for these competitive scholarships must be submitted by Dec. 1 of a student’s senior year in high school. To apply, visit the Air Force ROTC website.

    These scholarships are also available for up to three years to students already enrolled in the ROTC program.

    Students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering may begin their studies at Angelo State University and transfer this scholarship to an ROTC-approved engineering school.

    AFROTC also offers scholarships for nursing majors, some technical majors and some language majors depending on graduation date and current shortages. For more information, contact the Aerospace Studies Department.

The criteria identified below are a guideline that helps in the proper distribution of scholarship funds; however, the scholarship board will take into account the whole person. In other words, an individual who fails to meet one or more criteria may be awarded a scholarship due to exceptional performance in the remaining categories.
