    Hi, I am applying to wake forest university and they clearly have an AROTC program. However, when I look for it through the scholarship app. portal, WFU is not in the drop down. How can I choose this college in my school of intent if it’s not on the list?🤔

    Are students selected for AFROTC scholarships at specific schools or in general, for any school?

    Hey Everyone, I thought that AFROTC offered general/universal scholarships, meaning the acceptance into ROTC was independent of the school the recipient attended (of course, the school would have to offer an AFROTC program); however, in my scholarship application, the Air Force asked me to...

    Howdy y’all, If I join AROTC in college, is it reasonable to still apply to my top choice of another SA branch? (Will this put me behind other applicants for USAFA/USNA? Will I still be able to get a nom from AROTC to USNA?) Thank you.
