Montana State University ROTC Air Force ROTC is a college program offered at more than 1100 campuses across the country that prepares young men and women to become leaders in the Air Force. But it's also so much more. You will grow as an individual both mentally and physically while developing lifelong friendships. It's an opportunity to acquire strong leadership skills that will benefit you as an Air Force officer and in corporate America. It is also an opportunity to pay for school through scholarships. Plus, unlike many college students, you'll have a position waiting for you in the world’s most dominant Air Force! Our program typically starts in the first year of college and continues through graduation. We have an outstanding program for our cadets at Montana State University, I encourage you to browse our website at http://www.montana.edu/airforce/ for more information about our program here.
ROTC Admission Requirements
• Maintain a 2.5 GPA (minimum)
• Attend a college that offers AFROTC
• Enroll in AFROTC as an elective
• Be in good physical shape
• Have high moral character
The typical time requirement per week for ROTC as a freshman is 5 hours:
• One hour class per week (Tuesday or Thursday)
• Two one hour Physical Training (PT) sessions (Tuesday and Thursday)
• Two hours at Leadership Laboratory (Wednesday)
Type 1: Pays full college tuition, most fees and $600 per year for books. Approximately 5% of our four-year scholarshipwinners will be offered a Type-1 scholarship (mostly in technical fields). Technical fields that are related to careers in the Air Force that have a scientific basis such as engineering, chemistry and meteorology, and that the Air Force considers a need for its officers.
Type 2: Pays college tuition and most fees up to $18,000 and $600 per year for books. Approximately 15% of our four-year scholarship winners will be offered a Type-2 scholarship (mostly in technical fields). If a student attends an institution where the tuition exceeds $18,000 per year, then he/she pays the difference. All three-year scholarships are type 2.
Type 7: Pays college tuition up to the equivalent of the in-state rate at a public school and $600 per year for books. If a student receives a Type-7 offer but wishes to attend a college/university where they do not qualify under the guidelines above, the student can convert the four-Year Type-7 scholarship to a three-Year Type-2 scholarship. You cannot activate a Type-7 scholarship at a non-qualifying school and pay the difference.
Additionally, detachment 450 at Montana State University also offers a unique Room & Board scholarship that is not necessarily available at other universities/ROTC detachments. Cadets are competed if they have a 3.0+ GPA in college and good performance in the AFROTC program.
Raise Me University of Montana-----This is for all students in high school and it is a micro-scholarship. Sign up and make an account!
Raise.me is a social enterprise working in partnership with the White House and over 180 colleges to expand access to higher education by improving the way students prepare for college—both financially and academically. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is often too late to impact a student’s college ambitions or choices, Raise.me enables students to earn grant aid throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular. The amount that students earn from a college on Raise.me represents a guaranteed minimum amount of aid they’ll receive if they apply and are admitted to that college.
HOPA Mountain-- Hopa Mountain is a non-profit program that is actively seeking to recruit Junior and Senior students of Native American or Latino heritage with a 3.4 GPA or higher.

We can also help the students pay for college application fees.
