Air Force ROTC Scholarships

Website: UW Air Force ROTC

Description

Air Force ROTC  at the University of Washington is an educational program designed to give you an opportunity to become an officer in the United States Air Force while you complete your bachelor's degree. Also, the Air Force ROTC program will prepare you to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance in the modern Air Force.

Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) offers a variety of scholarships that will help relieve the financial burden of your college education. The High School Scholarship Program (HSSP) is available for high school seniors or those who have not yet enrolled in college full-time. The HSSP application is due in the fall prior to enrolling in college. The In College Scholarship Program (ICSP) are for those already enrolled full-time in college but are willing to pursue 3-4 years of undergraduate studies while in the program.

Procedure
The In-College Scholarship Program works differently than most scholarships--it's not one a UW student can apply for as the student first needs to be enrolled as a cadet in our program (how students enroll:  https://www.washington.edu/afrotc/program-entry-requirements-and-forms/).
 
Freshmen in AFROTC program go up for ICSP in the Spring Term.  If they are awarded the scholarship, most will have 100% of their tuition covered plus $900 annual book allowance and a monthly stipend of $300.  The scholarship begins the following year.
 
Sophomores in AFROTC go up for ICSP in the Fall Term.  If they are awarded the scholarship, most will have 100% of their tuition covered plus $900 annual book allowance and a monthly stipend of $300.  The scholarship is initiated during the term once awarded.  Sophomores not yet part of our program and enroll with us in the fall can be eligible for the scholarship if they meet the requirements.
 
The program awards scholarships based on merit during two selection phases (fall and spring semesters).
 
 
Service Agreement

if you are awarded a scholarship, you become obligated when you accept and sign an agreement with the United States Air Force.

If you are under legal age in the state where the school is located, your parent or legal guardian must sign this agreement.

 

YOU WILL AGREE TO:
  1. Continue to pursue the academic major for which the scholarship is offered.
