    As of yesterday, our DD's liaison didn't think any had been awarded yet. But, as with everything Academy related...who knows?

    Can't comment on next year but NMMI went 7 for 7 (100%) on Falcon Appointments this year.

    NMMI Prep Director, that is a very impressive record! I have done some reading and NMMI seems like a very well run organization. My DD would love to attend NMMI if the cards fall that way. I also appreciate that you are so accessible on this forum...from a parent perspective - that is a very good thing! Keep up the good work.

    I received my TWE last week and within a few days I got the call from my USAFA counselor that I was offered a Falcon Foundation Scholarship

    Good luck for everyone still waiting!

    My DS received his TWE on 4/4 and was offered a Falcon Foundation scholarship on 4/17 (ALO called with news.) He accepted through the portal the next day. We are in the process of deciding where he will attend. The most difficult part has been explaining the scholarship to family and friends but we are thrilled to have that problem!

    My son was a Falcon at NMMI (which we highly recommend) during the 2011 – 2012 school year. As part of his high school graduation program, they listed all of the scholarships each graduate received and he had some pretty impressive scholarships from good engineering schools like Rennsselaer, Virginia Tech, etc. And then there was the $5000 Falcon Foundation Scholarship. Anyone looking at the program without knowing my son had no idea of the true value of that scholarship. I agree it’s a good problem to have explaining it.

    That is great news! It seems that the early Falcon Scholarships are trickling out slowly. It looks like in previous years the bulk of them came out in early May. Congrats!
