    So I just received the AFROTC type 7 scholarship, and I am thrilled!

    However, I'm just wondering as to how much it will actually cover?

    I plan on going to the University of Central Florida, and the total estimated cost per year is 17k.

    I'm just wondering if the scholarship covers room and board also, or if it's just tuition...because if it's just tuition...then I don't know how doable this will really be for me.

    Thanks folks!

    All scholarships are tuition only, but the school may offer you something

    You didn't mention whether this is in-state or out of state. Type 7 only covers in-state tuition up to $18,000. If it is out of state you would have to convert it to a Type 2 (3 year) scholarship.

    It's just tuition, but many schools give a room and board scholarship for ROTC scholarship recipients. So check with your school's financial aid office and see if they do have room and board scholarships for ROTC students. Congrats on your scholarship!

    Type 7—Pays college tuition up to the equivalent of a public school’s in-state rate and a book allowance. If a student receives a Type 7 offer, but wishes to attend a college/university where they do not qualify under the guidelines, the student can convert the four-year Type 7 scholarship to a three-year Type 2 scholarship. You cannot activate a Type 7 scholarship at a nonqualifying school and pay the difference

    You can find the definition of all the scholarship types here: http://www.afrotc.com/scholarships/types

    It is in state, that's what is so confusing to me; it says it covers in state tuition up to 18k...

    However, since I am an FL resident, tuition is only about 7k...

    So that leaves me a LOT of money to pay on my own.

    Thanks for the help!
