I'm trying to get a handle on what the risks are to ROTC Scholarship students as an enrolled cadet (non-SMC) and hope that folks can shed some light here. In AFROTC, it is my understanding that the Air Force made an unexpected cut-back last year on the number of cadets who could attend Summer Field Training (fewer slots were offered than the number of students on scholarship). The practical result of this means that those scholarship students not selected from SFT lost their scholarships (had to pay full tuition for junior and senior years), but did not have to reimburse the AF for the prior tuition payments. Are there similar potential traps for AROTC and NROTC scholarship students? Or is it basically that if you do what is required in AROTC and NROTC as a cadet (and don't get medically DQ'd), you will likely earn a commission in the end? I understand that the whole question of whether you are given an active-duty slot is an entirely different question, but I'm trying to determine whether AROTC and NROTC cadets on scholarship have to worry about losing their scholarships for budget problems in Congress, like their colleagues in AFROTC do. Any thoughts are appreciated.
