Once a scholarship cadet is contracted are stipend payments prorated for subsequent semesters when the semester is less than 5 full months? According to the Scholarship Cadet Contract (DA Form 597-3): b. PAY MONTHLY SUBSISTENCE. Pay a subsistence allowance for participation in the scholarship program for 10 months of any academic year (or the actual duration of the academic year, whichever is shorter) at the rate of $___ per month for MS I cadets ... So assuming a cadet contracts in the fall semester, if the spring semester runs from Jan 8 - May 8: 1. Will the stipend payments on Jan 15th and May 15th be prorated to reflect the actual start and end dates? 2. Will the cadet only receive 4 months of stipend payments in this example since the spring semester is shorter than 5 months - running from Jan 8 to May 8?
