  • National Air Force ROTC Scholarships

    Four-year Air Force ROTC scholarships are available on a nationwide basis for entering freshmen. Application for these highly competitive scholarships must be accomplished prior to December 1 of the senior year in high school. To apply for the four year Air Force scholarships go to the official U.S. Airforce ROTC website.

    These AFROTC scholarships are also available for three years for students in any major program already enrolled in the ROTC program. Students are encouraged to contact the department for additional information.

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.

Angelo State University’s ROTC Scholarships

  • Bell Scholarship

    This scholarship fund was established by the late Ronald and Mavis Bell to provide financial aid to students who are enrolled in the AFROTC program at Angelo State University. Preference will be given to cadets who meet the following criteria: the student must be United States Veteran; must be in good academic standing with a 2.75 grade point average; cadets must maintain a 15 hour course load; cadets must demonstrate financial need. If no United States Veteran is eligible, a son or daughter of a United States Veteran may qualify. If no other qualifying United States Veteran or their descendant is eligible, then a cadet who was a JROTC cadet may receive the scholarship. If the cadet maintains a 2.75 or better the scholarship will be retained until the cadet graduates. All of the following scholarships can be applied for by using the Carr Air Force ROTC Scholarship Application plus a current school transcript showing your most recent semesters’ work and two recommendations or evaluations. Other information such as a personal resume, pictures or letters can also be included and is highly recommended as these scholarships are based on a whole person concept.
