ROTC Flagship Scholarships

Air Force Foreign Language Flagship Scholarship Program

The Air Force offers scholarships to Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) students under the Air Force In-College Scholarship Program (ICSP) – Type 2 for Foreign Languages to meet the needs of the Air Force based on the Air Force Strategic Language List. The program is designed to allow students to study at one of the 31 Language Flagship institutions focusing on Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, and Russian, with the goal of Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) Level 3 proficiency upon completion of the program.

Air Force ROTC will award a maximum of 4-year scholarships and DLNSEO will provide funding for the fifth-year Capstone program overseas as well as attendance to intensive summer language programs, as needed, to Air Force ROTC students who successfully qualify for one of the Flagship programs. Air Force ROTC students need to meet The Language Flagship program language proficiency requirements for participation in selected summer language programs and the fifth-year overseas Capstone program.

To be eligible for the AFROTC ICSP Flagship scholarship, AFROTC cadets must enroll in one of the Language Flagship programs, pursue their AFROTC-contracted major in the language, AND meet and maintain all AFROTC cadet criteria as per AFROTC Instruction 36-2011, Cadet Operations.

Those interested in the Language Flagship should contact their desired Language Flagship institution for information on applying through the institution’s established process and its host AFROTC Detachment for information on AFROTC eligibility and the AFROTC Language Flagship scholarship.
