    Is there a way to extend the deadline for accepting a scholarship offer? My current deadline is March 17th, but one of the schools I was offered a scholarship at releases its decisions on April 1st.

    If you have been offered a scholarship, accept it immediately.

    If you are not accepted to that school, there is a chance that you can transfer the scholarship. There is also a chance that the school will change its mind if they know that you are a ROTC Scholarship recipient.

    There are multiple threads on this topic. Review them to find out what other students in your position have done and how it worked out for them.

    Accepting the scholarsip does not obligate you. You can accept now and decline any where up until school starts.

    The following is pulled from the thread "Can I transfer my 4 year scholarship ?":

    1. Accept the scholarship you've been offered
    2. Ask Cadet command to transfer the scholarship to a school you have been admitted into.
    3. If you haven't been admitted and are waiting for March decisions, then wait to ask Cadet Command until you can fax them an admissions offer.
    4. Wait for their decision. While waiting, get to know the Cadre as the receiving school, and see if they will support your request.
    5. Ask the cadre at the school that denied your admission if they can influence an appeal decision there.

    You have a much better chance of having your request approved if the receiving school is of equal or less cost, and it is within the same Brigade.
