    Pleases post any info regarding ICSP recently handed out. Exactly how/when are receipients notified? Anxiously waiting to hear from my DS as ERAU was on Spring break last week and DS has baseball game today which means he wouldn't have attended this mornings PT.

    We just came back from Spring Break.

    The results were announced on March 22. But they haven't released any statistics or anything.

    Definitely,

    Just take it easy. There's really nothing you can do at this point.

    Hopefully, he brings back home some good news! :D

    Cadre sent me an e-mail last Friday.

    Lucky for me, my school stipends everything the Air Force doesn't cover, so I'm running on a full ride.

    It's been a great spring break so far :biggrin:

    We had 2 cadets get ICSP this semester. Both were 100s.

    Really? I only thought 200s got ICSP scholarships.

    All the cadets that received ICSP at my det were 200s. (

    My det recieved 10 total ICSPs. This seems like more than the average. 9 were given to 100s and 1 was given to a 200. I know 3 of the 9 were awarded through the express scholarhship program this year, which obligates the recipents to be be either an ABM or CSO after graduation.

    In the last 2 boards, I thought 100's were more common than 200's for ICSP, when looking at posts on this site.

    For 13 grads, 200 was more common than 100's, but after that it was 100's.

    No offense to S72004, but I am with others...100's are common when it comes to ICSP. It may be their det that only puts up 200's,

    None taken.. It just struck me as odd that 100s would actually get scholarships. Like you said, it may be that my det does it a bit different.

    Going back to Eaglemans post. If the scholarship obligates them to become a CSO or ABM wouldn't that guarantee recipients a commission, or the very least a Field Training slot? I understand that it is not always 100% but that strikes me as odd.
    For the Air Force to give out scholarships based on future careers, that must mean that it is pretty undermanned, right?

    Yes, in short AFMPC has decided that the AFSC code for CSO/ABM is undermanned.

    Yes, by taking the scholarship and guaranteeing like nursing they will go either CSO or ABM, they will be protected in a way like nursing. They meet the stds of cgpa, pft, and CoC rec it is basically 100% guarantee they will get SFT and commission.

    No guarantee they won't bust IFS or UNT, but it is their way to bump up the numbers for UNT and ABM.

    Finally, this should not strike you odd at all. AF and AFROTC always has a 5 yr manpower goal. They are saying we don't have enough coming down the pipeline starting with 16.

    Bullet was a F15E WSO aka now CSO, as an O4 with 15 yrs in, they gave him a 6 figure bonus pay because they were so short of CSOs in his gate yrs.

    That is what they are seeing now, they are short for 16, and 17 when it comes to rated CSO and ABM.

    It goes much deeper because pilot and RPA for AFROTC are part of that too, but it is their way to fill all 4 rated options.

    OBTW, if you look back at eagleman''s post only 30% took the CSO/ABM, scholarship. They are still the minority of the scholarships awarded to their det when it comes to 100's.

    Just remember, that their det must be huge to get that amount, esp. when you add in HSSP recipients. It is not the number that matters it is the % of the cadets. 12 out of 125 cadets is 10%. If you have only 20 cadets, it is different.

    6 cadets from my detachment received scholarships. All of them 100's. In the fall there will be another ICSP, which favors the 200's.

    That being because grades haven't been received from the 100's for that specific phase.

    Pima got it right on the dot, again about the scholarship.

    I highly considered applying for the CSO/ABM scholarship, but eventually decided against because it would limit my job choices down to one. Also, it just seemed like there were too many risky variables (i.e. not passing CSO AFOQT sections, DQ on medical etc.) If one of these things did occur I would have had to pay the scholarship money back.

    However, I guess it worked out in the end, since I got the scholarship:thumb:

    The det at The Citadel is naturally large. We have about 13 now on scholarship out of about 40 or so pursuing in the AS100 class.

    My son was on spring break when the board met and didn't find out until the day he returned - March 25th. He considered going for the express scholarship (CSO), but it seemed too risky, so he decided against it. He did receive a scholarship and took his oath on Thursday!
    He told us that there were 8 from his school who received scholarships, and 3 of the 8 were CSO.
    Sorry for my ignorance, I don't know what the 100s, 200s, etc mean. I can tell you my son is very involved in his Det, is an EE major, and has a 3.6 GPA as a freshman at The Citadel.

    No problem. If your son is a freshman then he is a 100. Next year he'll be a 200.
    Congrats...it sounds as though your son is doing very well.

    100s = freshman
    200s = sophomore.

    Curiosity does your DS want to fly?

    Pima,
    He would love to fly, but he has seasonal allergies. Based on what we've read, this will disqualify him.
