    Has anyone heard back about this scholarship? Got my TWE on April 7 for USAFA and USAFA Prep, still holding out hope for this though. When do they typically announce the recipients?

    Looks like many received a portal update today with FFS announcement. My DS was not one of them, but will self-prep and try again next year. Good luck!

    Insider said:
    The first batch included offers to 70+ candidates. Only 60 scholarships are available. We know from experience that a fairly high rate of offers will be declined, so additional offers MAY be made if we don't use the available scholarships from the first round of offers.

    Good to know! Any idea when the next wave of offers will go out? Also, in an earlier thread you said a majority of those who received a rejection on April 7 are being considered for falcon prep. Is that still the case? I got a twe on that day and I'm wondering if I'm still in the running for one.

    So, with only 60 slots available and 70+ offered, the rest must wait until someone declines (deadline for those recipients to accept or decline is 9 May). Then, more offers may go out if the acceptance numbers fall below 60 (unless I am misinterpreting Insider's comment).
