Reserve Officer Training Corps
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps is an educational and leadership program designed to provide young men and women with the opportunity to become Air Force officers while completing a bachelor's or master's degree. The Air Force ROTC program prepares students to assume challenging positions of responsibility and importance in the Air Force.
Through a program with Boston University, interested Brandeis students may participate in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps Program. Requirements include yearly aerospace studies classes, leadership laboratory classes and physical fitness training. Mandatory weekly time commitments range from five to seven hours.
Once students complete their degree, the Air Force offers a wide variety of career fields from which to choose, including flying opportunities as a pilot, navigator or weapons controller.
In addition to the leadership and management training that cadets receive, they can also benefit from several scholarship programs.
Please contact the ROTC programs for information on how to apply for four- and three-year scholarships. The scholarship range includes full- and partial-tuition. Scholarship winners also receive a stipend per month, a book allowance and uniforms. Applications for scholarships are due by Dec. 1 of senior year.
Freshmen and sophomores already in college can compete for two-, three- and three-and-one-half-year scholarships, some of which cover full tuition; others cover partial tuition per academic year. All scholarship winners receive a stipend per month, a book allowance and uniforms.
