The next generation needs godly leaders. One of the best ways to prepare to lead others is through the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program at Maranatha. Air Force ROTC cadets attend an aerospace studies class each semester, a hands-on leadership laboratory, and weekly physical fitness sessions, all while learning about how the Air Force works.

Upon graduating, contracted cadets enter active duty service as second lieutenants in leadership and management roles in the U.S. Air Force. Most career fields have an active-duty commitment of four years after college. If students choose to separate from the Air Force at that time, they can pursue other careers with experience and the distinction of “military officer” on their résumés.

To receive an officer’s commission, AFROTC cadets must complete all necessary requirements for a degree as well as courses specified by the Air Force. In addition, scholarship cadets receive a nontaxable allowance ranging from $300 to $500 per month, depending on academic/AFROTC year.
