Governing Instruction
Air Force Body Composition Policy

The application process starts with instructors nominating an eligible cadet(s). Nominated cadets must meet all minimum eligibility requirements in order to move forward with the application process. It is imperative that SASI/ASIs pre-screen potential candidates and consider well-rounded cadets who have demonstrated leadership, character, and citizenship in and out of JROTC. Certain modules in the application require instructor validation of cadet data input, so please ensure enough time is allotted for both instructor and cadet actions. No extensions will be granted to the application deadline.

Instructors and potentially nominated applicants should review AFROTC’s university list. Nominated applicants are encouraged to start college application actions prior to the J-100 application deadline. This is critical, as any AFJROTC scholarship select must have a Letter of Acceptance from their school of choice to accept the scholarship.
