Air Force ROTC Scholarship
Air Force ROTC scholarships for Fall 2017 and information on the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s new scholarship for AFROTC. Applications open June 1st, 2016 for students who intend to start college Fall of 2017.
The earlier a student applies, the greater their chance of receiving a scholarship. The Air Force holds multiple boards starting in December of 2016. The scholarships offer a “Freshman” option, so if your student decides they don’t want to join the Air Force after graduation, they student can walk away from the AFROTC scholarship without any consequence. Additionally, the scholarships do not count against a student’s financial aid package as they are treated the same as a Veteran benefit. All of the Air Force ROTC Scholarships will cover all tuition and fees for a student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for 4 years for a non-technical degree & five years for a technical degree (requires calculus).
The University of Nebraska at Omaha will offer a Housing Scholarship to ROTC students admitted or enrolled who are eligible for a Regents Scholarship and have been awarded an Air Force ROTC Scholarship. The UNO ROTC Housing Scholarship, valued at approximately $6,850/year in 2015-16, would cover the cost of housing for 12 months and would be offered in lieu of the Regents Scholarship, valued at approximately $6,025/year in 2015-16. The ROTC Housing Scholarship is renewable and a student may hold it for up to four years. ROTC Housing Scholarship recipients who opt out of the ROTC program, but remain enrolled at UNO, would have the Regents Scholarship reinstated, assuming that renewal criteria had been met.
Also, University of Nebraska at Omaha offers a ROTC Living Community on Campus for students to live in: http://www.unomaha.edu/student-life/housing-and-residential-life/residential-learning-communities.php
