    Can one get the scholarship after being accepted? Or any scholarship from the Citadel for that matter after acceptance? I was accepted in mid September.

    After you get accepted, you may be invited to attend the Citadel Scholars Program. From here, you compete for the full ride scholarship. There was one in November and there will be another one in February I believe. It is by invite only.
