    I turned in the presentation request form on time. However my designated presentor has not received any information yet. I am concerned because my award night is in 2 weeks.

    Those of you who chose to have your scholarship presented at school, when did they notify your presentor? Thanks in advance.

    If you're concerned, reach out and find out what's going on. No one here can possibly know.

    I agree with kinnem.

    Think of this as getting accustomed to how many times you will be speaking/checking/re-checking with the det over lost paperwork.:rolleyes::eek::wink:

    Additionally, the presenter does this all the time. All they really need to know is your college cost, and type of scholarship (1,2 or 7). The rest of their talking points are traditionally the same. They will pay for books, give a monthly stipend for the 4 yrs, summer training and a guaranteed job after graduation for 4 yrs, with the opportunity to see the world, including Germany, Italy, Hawaii, etc.

    Of course they won't say you could also be stationed in ND, Idaho, etc.:shake:

    I wouldn't worry about this at all. Your presenter knows the time, date and location. That truly is the biggies to be worried about. Honestly, I don't think we asked for the presentation until @2 weeks prior, and there still was someone to award it that night.

    It is important to you to share this, but remember for the AF, this is the most effective cost of recruiting. Think about it. @ 900 scholarships are offered nationally. If the avg graduating class is 300 -500, and parents have 1 or 2 younger children. They just enlightened them, and thus, the applicant pool grows even larger than millions spent on websites and television ads that don't illustrate anecdotally it happens in your own school!
