Congratulations everybody on your scholarships! Yesterday my DS got his T2 AFROTC Scholarship upgraded to T1 any Major from a top program. Wow, we're so grateful. Didn't expect it because T1 is reserved for Engineering Majors. DS is planning on nontech major. He got his T2 any major back in November and was disappointed because he received T3 any major from NROTC and AROTC - is any major. Now DS has same option to potentially enroll as AFROTC Cadet. He is now looking into designing his own Major combining nontech with tech elements. He says he will take Aeronautics, Astronautics, and Engineering Design as electives.
I looked into the past thread on how AFROTC Scholarships break down and this is what I found, it probably doesn't change much:
It reads, "Just got off phone with AFROTC HSSP headquarters:"
In 2011 there were 15,000 applications submitted for HSSP
4,000 were eligible
911 received scholarships
Now break that down even more.
Type 1 = 5% of all scholarships...so only 45 will be awarded and only 5% of them will go non-tech or about 2 or 3
Type 2 = 20% of all scholarships .... or @180 and again only about 5% go to non-tech...which would be about 10
Type 7 = 75% of all scholarships ... or 675 and this is where the majority of non-tech will get a scholarship, but will still be in the minority. I won't swear by it, but I believe it 25% of the 75% which would be @170
Add it up as a non-tech, there are about 180 scholarships for non-tech majors. Which means you MUST have a strong applicant profile. This is why many will try to enter the tech route to secure the scholarship, which is wrong, because if they want to change to non-tech they need approval and it is unlikely for that to occur in this day and age.
