    Is it possible for a cadet to receive a signing bonus upon contracting, or is that only available for enlisted personnel? Just trying to have a possible plan in place for DS to pay any student loans if he doesn't receive a scholarship.

    I've never heard of such a thing happening, which is different than saying it doesn't happen. I would be surprised to see it happen even in good budget times with a major war on, so I wouldn't expect it to be even a possibility now. However, my wife reminds me I've been wrong from time to time.

    @Clarkson -- thanks! I didn't think it was a possibility, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Never, at least not that I have heard of and definitely not in this day and age with the budget cuts. :eek:

    There is SLRP (Student Loan Repayment Program) which could be of use for future loans.
