Start Planning your Future Early

If you are in high school now is a perfect time to start learning more about Air Force ROTC and the opportunities it has to offer.

High School Seniors

Applications to apply for an Air Force ROTC scholarship start the summer before your senior year. The application window is open from 7 July - 31 January. The application involves submitting test scores, grades, and an interview at a local Air Force ROTC detachment. Don't worry if you missed the deadline though, a scholarship is not required to join Air Force ROTC.

High School Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors

It is never too early to start preparing yourself for an Air Force ROTC scholarship. The Air Force looks for candidates with strong examples of leadership and organizational skills. Build your resume by getting involved in projects that will develop your leadership skills. Planning a community project, becoming a leader in a student group or the captain of a sports team, or completing that eagle scout project are some great examples of ways you can set yourself up for success. Being able to demonstrate leadership experience is a crucial part of the Air Force ROTC application process.
