* Eligibility is not a guarantee of receipt.  The TCU Financial Aid office makes the final determination regarding additional benefits.  Some additional benefits may not be combined with additional financial assistance offered by TCU.

** Room & Board Grant amount subject to change.  The Room & Board Grant may not cover full amount, especially for subsequent academic years, if room & board costs increase.  Contact TCU Financial Aid for current rate and additional information.

In-College Scholarship Program (ICSP)

All first- and second-year Air Force ROTC cadets are considered for ICSP. Each semester Air Force ROTC higher headquarters releases ICSP eligibility requirements. The Detachment commander then decides who among the eligible cadets will compete for the scholarship. The detachment then sends all applicable information about the cadets chosen to compete for the scholarship back to HHQ. HHQ then compares the info on each cadet from each detachment around the country and chooses scholarship recipients.
