18.3 SCHOLARSHIPS. AFJROTC nominates the best-qualified cadets for scholarships provided cadets meet the minimum Air Force requirements. Scholarship (with limits) pay for tuition, books, lab fees and uniforms. Recipients may use the scholarship at a college/university where the recipient is enrolled provided it has a senior ROTC unit and the recipient enrolls in the program.
