ROTC Scholarship for Flagship Students
Air Force Foreign Language Flagship Scholarship Program
The Air Force Foreign Language Flagship Scholarship Program is a joint initiative between AFROTC and the Defense Language and National Security Education Office (DLNSEO). The Language Flagship concept promotes strategic partnerships between the federal government and the educational community with the goal of building language programs that produce a cohort of professionally proficient language speakers. AFROTC scholarships tied to participation in Flagship programs and initiatives may be awarded to active cadets for a maximum of 4 years; DLNSEO will further provide funding for a fifth year “Capstone” program abroad, as well as attendance in intensive summer language programs, as needed.
As a Flagship AFROTC cadet (even if you’re not on a Flagship Scholarship!), you may become eligible for additional benefits such as tax free monthly stipends and annual performance-based incentive pay during school, competitive priority consideration for Air Force career fields and assignments, and you’ll receive world-class leadership and professional development training, education, and experience during your time in the Air Force officer cadet corps. Graduates of an IU Flagship language program are not locked into any specific Air Force specialty—in fact, Flagship cadets are eligible to apply for virtually any of the dozens of Air Force officer career fields including rated (flying) duty! As an officer serving on active duty in the United States Air Force, Flagship graduates will also have the opportunity to apply for language proficiency-based bonus pay and will gain valuable leadership, management, technical, and operational experience in the world’s finest air, space, and cyberspace force.
