We’ll help you cover the costs

Joining Air Force ROTC is the best investment you can make—pay for college while preparing for a lifetime of success.

Scholarships for high school students

The U.S. Air Force ROTC High School Scholarship Program (HSSP) offers full and partial scholarships to high school seniors.

Air Force ROTC scholarships cover tuition, textbooks, and most lab fees. Recipients can also get a monthly stipend of up to $500.

Receiving an Air Force ROTC scholarship does not affect Federal Student Aid (FASFA) eligibility.

Scholarships for college students

If you are currently attending IU Bloomington, IUPUI, or Butler University, you can still get all the benefits of being a cadet.

You must have at least six semesters remaining in your college career to join Air Force ROTC.

You will be considered for scholarships during your second semester in the program. Scholarships are awarded based on GPA, Physical Fitness Test scores, and personal assessment by the cadre—your instructors who bring years of experience in the U.S. Air Force. The number of scholarships available varies each year.
