  • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

Scholarship Overview

Are you a high school student with plans of working for the United States Air Force? You might consider applying for the Air Force ROTC High School Scholarship!

The scholarships pay off between $18,000 per year or full tuition for college with an Air Force ROTC detachment. In order to apply, students must pass several medical and physical fitness exams, in addition to meeting minimum SAT/ACT score thresholds. Just bear in mind that, if you win, you must sign an official agreement with the United States Air Force.
