Cadet Commander and Academy senior Andrew U. was recently awarded a 4-year Air Force JROTC J-100 scholarship!
This scholarship selects 100 Air Force JROTC cadets from high schools around the world. The application process includes a review of high school transcripts, test scores, performance in JROTC, personal essays, an interview phase and more! The J-100 scholarship pays full books and tuition in college while the student participates in ROTC. After college graduation the cadet is commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force.
Andrew plans to study nutrition science at Metro State University and eventually become a nutritionist in the Air Force. “I’m really interested in studying the ways food effects your body. I wrote my Capstone research project on nutrition science and I’m looking forward to continuing my studies in college, in addition to meeting new people,” said Andrew.
Andrew also gave key advice for his fellow cadets that might be interested in applying for the J-100 scholarship, “be sure to stay on top of your fitness but most importantly stay on top of your schoolwork because that was the main part of the application process.”
Lt Col William Arrington and CMSgt Robert Rodewald could not be more excited for Andrew and his future! “Andrew epitomizes everything we ask for in a cadet and a young person. He has what I call the three As, Attendance, Academics, and Attitude,” said CMGgt Rodewald.
“Andrew is going to achieve everything he wants in life. He is extremely trustworthy and has the upmost integrity and always holds his peers accountable,” said Lt Col Arrington.
