    The AFROTC from February is starting to release the results. My daughter received a type II scholarship. WHOO HOO! Not really sure what a type II is, but we are celebrating anyway! Her ROTC commander heard the news first, and let her know this morning.

    And there was much dancing and making of merry!:thumb:

    Hey guardianvg,
    Tell your daughter congrats for me. Also, here are the three types of rotc scholarships that the af give out.

    type 1 – Pays full college tuition, most fees and $900 per year for books. Approximately 5% of our four-year scholarship winners will be offered a Type-1 scholarship (mostly in technical fieldstechnical fields
    Fields mostly related to careers in the Air Force that have a scientific basis such as engineering, chemistry and meteorology, and that the Air Force considers a need for its officers. ).

    type 2 – Pays college tuition and most fees up to $18,000 and $900 per year for books. Approximately 20% of our four-year scholarship winners will be offered a Type-2 scholarship (mostly in technical fields). If a student attends an institution where the tuition exceeds $18,000 per year, then he/she pays the difference. All three-year scholarships are type 2.

    type 7 – Pays college tuition up to the equivalent of the in-state rate and $900 per year for books. If a student receives a Type-7 offer but wishes to attend a college/university where they do not qualify under the guidelines above, 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 non-qualifying school and pay the difference.

    Thanks for the info Runningman. My daughter said she was awarded a total of $72,000 so it sounds like she got the best of it. She would like to attend Embry-Riddle, so hopefully she can use this scholarship towards tuition.

    She was also awarded a $72,000 scholarship from Norwich University. If her major qualifies, do you think she can take advantage of both to fill in the gaps or is it one or the other. She was accepted into the Corps of Cadets, so I'm not positive if it is a military scholarship, and, as such, would it be considered double-dipping. Not a bad dilemma.

    Congrats!
    My son has an AROTC scholarship at Indiana University plus an IU scholarship for $8k/yr. All but about $500 is now covered. When he studied summer language program there with Army, that scholarship plus bonus was put into his Bursar account. Anything leftover was his.

    Call Norwich and ask how it works. They may apply their scholarship to room and board and other fees.

    Will do, Singaporemom. This also puts Embry Riddle in reach for DD, which is her second choice, Norwich is third. Of course, we're still waiting on AFA, but this does ease some of the stress, for a day or so.

    ILrunning, I hope you get one, too!:wink:

    Just checked DD’s application tracker on the AFROTC web site.....Good News! She has been awarded a scholarship. Does she have to wait until she receives that snail mail notification to learn what type and what school? Is it OK for her to give them a call to learn what type?

    Now the Bad News; with both a USAF and USMMA appointment already here, this will only add to the stress level and confusion of a very fortunate 17 year old.... not to mention the testing of patients of two very proud parents…..

    I checked after I saw PA's post and... I have received a scholarship as well! I then called and learned I received: Four-Year Type 7 Any Technical Major I am so happy and wish everyone else good luck!

    PA PARENT: congrats on your daughter's accomplishments. Our son is struggling with similar good fortune: with appointment to AFA and USMA and ROTC scholarship in Army and AF (Type II) he has much to consider. He visited U. of Miami two weekends ago and that campus can be, uh, quite alluring. Good luck with your daughter's decision.

    My daughter received her letter in the mail today for her AFROTC, for those of you waiting for a hard copy. That seems awfully quick. I wasn't expecting anything to be mailed out until the 12th. Not complaining though!:biggrin:

    Bad news for my son. He was "not selected" for an AFROTC scholarship. :thumbdown:

    Congrats to those of you with the good news.
