    I was wondering if anyone knows (or knows where I can get the info) how many AROTC scholarship applications were received and how many were awarded. My DS is being recognized at his graduation ceremony and they would like the statistics. I have been searching for this information and just can't find it! Thank you!

    This is from the University of North Georgia (an SMC) Army ROTC website under FAQ's.

    Question: How many scholarships are available nation-wide?

    "For the academic year 2015-2016, 4,161 high school senior applications for the scholarship were reviewed.

    About 2,500 applicants were awarded a scholarship. About 30% of those were 4-year scholarships and 70% were 3-year scholarships."

    Thank you, but is there anywhere I can find national stats? Several years ago, upwards of 20,000 applications were received with about 4,000 scholarships awarded. I can't find anything more recent.

    Clarksonarmy posted not that long ago that he pulls those numbers every year and I think it was around 9,000 completed. But I couldn't find it.

    Was looking for my stats and stumbled upon them this morning. Here's what the stats looked like for this year on 10 Jan. I think they may have changed a little before all was said and done, but this should give you the picture.

    Total apps - 11871
    ineligible/disqualified - 5876
    Offers - 2814
    interviewee - 3178

    Interviewee are applicants that had enough information in their file to be eligible for an interview. That number could be anything from "never did an interview" to "boarded". As I'm looking at the number I'm realizing that as long as you met the minimum requirements, and were diligent enough to complete the process you had a 50% chance of getting a scholarship offer. Kind of crazy.

    @clarksonarmy....
    So by definition an "interviewee" is a candidate who also passed DoDMERB without outstanding remedials or waivers. Is that correct?

    Also, the stats are only for High School student 4 year AROTC scholarship applicants, right?

    No....

    From this years application website-

    "Your medical condition is not a consideration in the selection of scholarship winners; however, all winners must be medically qualified in order to enroll as scholarship cadets and receive benefits."

    The DODMERB plays no role in the scholarship application process. Nowhere on the application is there a DODMERB status, and the board has no visibility...in fact until the scholarship is offered the DODMERB is not even initiated for Army ROTC. Interviewee is anything between ineligible (which often means just hasn't submitted enough information yet) and offered.

    These are the stats from the high school process.

    Just curious, have you noticed a decline over the last few years in the number Qualified applicants. I remember seeing after the 2010 application season that the number of qualified applicants were much higher. Has this been a downward trend that last few years or does it just change year to year.

    Wow! So the offers reflect HS students who are recipients, but still have to pass DoDMERB (if they haven't already done so through the SA process). I wonder how many of the 2814 fall out before becoming officially scholarship contracted?

    Jcleppe, I wonder if the better economy has anything to do with it. My guess is less kids who my be considered qualified right off the bat may now have other opportunities to pay for college? Who knows.

    What portion of the 2814 are 3 yr and 4 yr? If there is fall out from the 2814 do colleges or CC try to look back at 3rd round and see if there are other likely candidates?

    From what I've understood, and I could be off a bit, the vacancies left from those that do not accept their scholarship on the first or second board are rolled over to the final 3rd board. Vacancies from those that don't accept from the third board and those that are DQ'd and do not receive a waiver are put back in the pot so to speak and then are able to be given by the battalions as a campus scholarship either before school starts or sometime during the school year.

    Of course this could be different now, things seem to change from year to year.

    Where to begin. I have noticed a decrease in the number of qualified applicants (interviewee or better). I think it has a lot to do with how the applications are processed. Overall apps are down a little, and I'm sure the economy has something to do with it. There are still plenty of kids applying each year though.

    Remember that along with the winners that are medically qualified there will be quite a few that chose to use another option like an SA or another branch. All these give backs aren't identified until after the third round, so that freed up money is pushed tot the Brigades and ultimately down to the Battalions for campus based scholarships.

    Wow! Thank you for the information! This entire process has been new to us. We are very proud of our DS for working so hard in all areas, not just academics! We are pleased that they want to recognize him at graduation as he is very deserving of the accolades. He is unaware of them doing this. They briefly recognized him at the scholarship night, but had to scramble for the information as the presenter never showed, however they really don't know what ROTC is. It amazes me how so few people know this, but especially a school that helps to guide students in career choices.

    Clarksonarmy, do you know the break down between 3 and 4 year scholarship offers?
