Jedidiah R. Langlois, son of Robert and Laura Langlois of Hudson, and Bradbury A. Hart, son of Bradbury and Melissa Hart of Amherst, have each been awarded an Air Force ROTC scholarship to attend a host college or university.

High school seniors are selected based on tests scores, scholastic achievement, school officials' evaluations, extracurricular activities and community involvement.

The majority of scholarships cover full college tuition and most lab and incidental fees. The scholarships also provide a textbook allowance and a tax-free $350 monthly allowance during the academic year, which increases to $500 in each student's senior year.

The value of a scholarship may exceed $100,000, depending on a student's choice of school and the type of scholarship offered.

Upon graduating from college and completing the ROTC program, the cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Air Force.
