I was very fortunate to receive a four-year ROTC scholarship this spring and I will be attending Baylor University in the Fall. I was talking with one of my buddies about the application process, and now he is interested in applying for a scholarship. He is now a senior in high school and plans on taking a gap year after he graduates. I know that if you apply for a scholarship during the summer before your senior year, you can sometimes have the option of deferring your scholarship for a year and take a gap year, but I told him that I didn't think it was possible if you apply after senior year. Do you know if he can still apply since he is taking a gap year anyway? Thanks for any input.
