Carr ROTC Scholarships

  • Each year, the Air Force ROTC detachment at Angelo State University offers more than $70,000 in scholarships to qualified students in the ROTC program. The funds are from the Carr ROTC Scholarship endowment. The endowment, left to the university by Mr. and Mrs. Robert G. Carr, is the largest private scholarship fund for AFROTC in the nation.

    Criteria for Selection

    Carr Air Force ROTC (AFROTC) Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. To be eligible for consideration, high school seniors must:

    • Score a combined math and verbal total of 800 or higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or score a 900 or higher on the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT I) or
    • Score a composite score of 20 or higher on the Enhanced ACT Assessment.

    Consideration is given to these attributes and achievements:

    • Class rank
    • Grade point average
    • Extracurricular activities
    • Honesty and integrity
    • Initiative and motivation
    • Leadership

    Amount of Scholarship Awards

    Individual scholarships up to $1,500 are awarded annually.

    Priority Date for Applications

    Applications are accepted year-round, but to receive your award check at fee payment time, please submit your application package by March 15.

    The criteria and procedures for scholarship awards and the priority application dates may be changed by AFROTC without notice.

    Selection and Notification of Scholarship Recipients

    Applicants for Carr ROTC Scholarships will be notified in writing regarding the status of their application once the package has gone before the scholarship board.

    Out-of-State Tuition Waivers

    The receipt of a Carr AFROTC Scholarship does not guarantee a tuition waiver. Non-Texas residents may be considered for an out-of-state tuition waiver based on current university criteria.

    Admission to Angelo State University

    An entering freshman who applies for a Carr AFROTC Scholarship must also submit an Application for Admission and supporting paperwork to Angelo State University through the Admissions Office.

    Duration and Conditions of Award

    Scholarship recipients receive one-half of their awards at fall fee payment and the remainder at spring fee payment, provided the recipients are meeting the scholarship’s academic requirements specified in the Statement of Understanding and are maintaining high personal standards.

    Recipients must:
    • Attend ASU as full-time students (12 semester credit hours for undergraduate students).
    • Be enrolled in an aerospace studies class and an accompanying leadership lab.

    Students who withdraw from the aerospace studies class and leadership lab may be required to repay all or part of the scholarship awarded.

    Scholarship Renewal Provisions

    Students do not have to reapply each academic year for scholarship renewal. Once a student is part of the ROTC program, continuation of the scholarship and the amount of the scholarship for the year(s) to follow is based on academic and corps performance.

    Summer Extensions

    Carr AFROTC Scholarships are not available during summer sessions because no aerospace studies classes are taught at those times. The summers are left open for other Air Force training.
