  • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
  • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
  • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
  • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
  • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
  • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
  • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
  • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
  • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
  • There is no available contact information

If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!

* There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
** 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 college student interested in serving in the U.S. Air Force? If so, consider applying for the U.S. Air Force In-College Scholarship Program! The ISCP is open to college freshmen and sophomores in specific majors whose universities host an Air Force ROTC program and who have completed at least one term as full-time students. 

The U.S. Air Force ROTC offers the scholarship program as a way to support students and develop leaders for future members of the air force. Thus, students who are selected for the program must accept a commission as an Air or Space Force officer and serve at least four years on active duty. In addition to this, chosen applicants may receive scholarships in varying amounts to help with their tuition costs. Bear in mind that there is no formal application process for the Program. Rather, Air Force ROTC staff evaluate and nominate cadets themselves. For more details on the In-College Scholarship Program, we recommend contacting your school’s AFROTC detachment.
