High School Students
The U.S. Air Force ROTC High School Scholarship Program (HSSP) offers full and partial scholarships to high school seniors. Those interested in a career with the United States Space Force may also apply for HSSP-SF. 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.
If you are currently attending BU, or any of our cross-town schools, 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.
