Air Force ROTC

The mission of Yale Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Detachment 009 is to produce quality leaders for the United States Air Force. AFROTC program requirements include military leadership preparation, physical training, and Aerospace Studies coursework.

Once cadets complete all AFROTC requirements and graduate from Yale College, they commission as officers in the Air Force. Graduates serve in such military specialties as aviation, intelligence, logistics, and medicine. AFROTC prepares students to excel as Air Force leaders and to perform effectively within a dynamic military environment.

Naval ROTC

The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) educates and trains young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or Marine Corps.

All NROTC courses, physical training, and leadership development seminars take place on Yale’s campus. First-year students may apply for enrollment in the non-scholarship College Program and may compete for scholarships at the completion of their first year, regardless of their level of financial need. Students selected for the Scholarship Program receive: full tuition, payment of academic fees, a textbook stipend, a monthly subsistence allowance that increases annually.

Students may apply for the national NROTC scholarship online via the Naval ROTC Web site. For enrollment in the non-scholarship College Program, students apply directly to the Yale NROTC unit.
