    My son was notified via email that he has been awarded a type 7 Air Force ROTC scholarship. I am new to this process. My son has applied at Auburn, Embry Riddle, and USNA. He has been accepted to both Auburn and Embry Riddle. We are still patiently waiting to hear from the USNA and USAFA. Praying daily for good news. My question is can my son use the type 7 scholarship at either of the schools of his choice(these are the schools listed on his rotc application). He would have to change the type 7 to a type 2 because those schools are out of state.

    Yes, AFROTC scholarships can be used at any college as long as it has an AFROTC unit.

    To follow up on kinnem's point, the scholarship can also be used at schools that do not have a detachment but have a cross-town arrangement with a university that does. This might mean some travelling, but it expands one's options.
