ROTC Scholarships

Miami hosts Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) opportunities for students interested in the Air Force and Navy. Xavier University Army ROTC in Cincinnati serves as the host program for Miami ROTC Army cadets.

Air Force ROTC

Air Force ROTC offers a scholarship program for highly qualified high school seniors as well as students already in college who are interested in commissioning as Air Force officers. Many scholarships pay full tuition, housing and dining, money for books, and a monthly tax-free stipend. AFROTC's in-college scholarship selection occurs during the freshman and sophomore years. High school seniors apply online by Dec. 1.

AFROTC develops quality leaders for the Air Force through a comprehensive training program focused on building leadership, management, and officership skills both in and out of the classroom. Students who complete the AFROTC program commission as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force with a challenging career specialty like pilot, navigator, air battle manager, intelligence, maintenance, security forces, space and missiles, finance, doctor, nurse, manpower and personnel, or public affairs.
