You’ve taken the first step by looking to further your education by attending college. Now, I’d like to introduce you to our award-winning AFROTC program and the scholarships we have here at Det 790.
First, on top of a guaranteed job after graduation, Air Force ROTC offers a plethora of benefits. There are numerous $CHOLAR$HIP opportunities for both technical and non-technical majors. Once in AFROTC, scholarships range from music majors to engineering majors. AFROTC Scholarships can pay up to your full tuition, $900 a year for books and up to $500 (tax free) per month paid directly to you for various living expenses. The Air Force needs officers in business, medicine/nursing, law, intelligence, communications, engineering, security space launch, aviation, and special forces just to name a few.
In AFROTC, we take motivated college students and turn them into Air Force officers by emphasizing a leadership-oriented curriculum. The cadets here at Det 790 are composed of college students from several universities in the Nashville area, including Vanderbilt, MTSU, TSU, Volunteer State, Austin Peay, Fisk, Belmont, Lipscomb, to name a few. The curriculum is designed to make you an exceptional leader, motivator, and above all, an outstanding Air Force Officer.
AFROTC isn’t all work and no play. Last semester our cadets traveled to Notre Dame University to participate in a ROTC basketball tournament, went on a whitewater rafting trip, visited. This semester our cadets are visiting Columbus AFB, flying 30 Civil Air Patrol flights, setting up a paint ball tournament and challenging each other to climb the Nashville wall. Whether it’s academics, sports, or pure adventure, Air Force ROTC will provide you with opportunities to get involved and meet great people. Moreover, we encourage involvement in other campus activities. Many of our cadets are involved in community services, sports, church groups, fraternities/sororities, student government, etc. We want you to experience a fulfilling college life, with a guaranteed job!
