Is it possible to defer an AFROTC Type 7 for a year? or Is it possible to decline the AFROTC scholarship after accepting it in April? I know if I accepted an AFROTC scholarship, then was offered an appointment to USAFA, USAFA trumps, but how does that work with a Falcon Scholarship? Here is my situation: I applied to USAFA, received a TWE mid-April. On Tuesday, I was awarded a Falcon Scholarship. There is a 99% chance of being appointed to the Academy next year, but there is still that 1%. Before I accept my FS, I want to have my bases covered. Yesterday I spent the day calling prep schools, and have narrowed it down to NWP and NMMI. After talking to my parents and JROTC instructors, here are my options. 1. If possible, defer the AFROTC scholarship and if I am not appointed to USAFA next year, I still can achieve my goal of being an officer in the Air Force. 2. Decline AFROTC for the Falcon Scholarship. Thank you for your help!
