Carr Academic 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 Academic ROTC Scholarship endowment. The endowment, left to the university by Mr. and Mrs. Robert G.

Award Terms and Conditions
Individual scholarships up to $1,500 are awarded annually.
Out-of-State Tuition Waivers
The receipt of a Carr Academic 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.
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.
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.
• 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.
Carr Academic 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.
