I am hoping someone has seen this issue before - I was awarded a 3 year Army AD scholarship which pays full tuition. The college I am attending gives a free room to ROTC students. So I only need to pay $3600 per year for the meal plan after freshman year. Here is the issue - The college has also awarded me a $12,000 per year "Presidential Scholarship" - "renewable for 4 years, total value $48,000". What will happen sophmore year when the ROTC credits full tuition and school credits the room fee to my account. Will the school still give me the $12,000? Can I use this money to pay the meal plan fees. Can I use any of the extra money for other college expenses? (transportation, books, computer, etc) Thanks for your help.
