    DS is applying to USAFA and then Norwich AFROTC as Plan B. If he doesn't get an ROTC scholarship, does Norwich stack? Our EFT is about $30,000, which is what the price tag would come down to with his probable merit scholarship. I would hope they would give at least some of the merit aid on top of financial aid, but you never know. All of this number crunching is keeping me up at night lol. Thanks!

    Depends on his award from the Air Force. If he is Type 1 then hooray. Type 2 Norwich is pretty good about awarding the difference from merit based funds for tuition only. Norwich also has generous monies for kids who turn paperwork early, for Eagle Scouts, work study and pain old clerks.

    Norwich does give the ID White scholarship which is strictly for room and board for contracted cadets.

    For Eagle Scouts? I asked our admissions rep about Eagle Scout consideration and was specifically told there were none. Can you specify what award(s) you are aware of?

    It's by invitation only every year based upon volunteer hours (those Eagle Project hours get attention) and an interview process through Civic Engagement.

    There is (was) an online calculator that gives you the minimum scholarship figure based on your stats.
    My son got $22,000, plus another $1,000 for being an FLC Alumni, per semester.

    Yes, I've tried the calculator, but it looks like the merit aid would just replace any need-based financial aid. I was wondering if anyone here had gotten need-based aid + merit aid if they didn't get any ROTC scholarship. I know we'll find out once we send everything in, but I was hoping for some examples. Thanks!

    My son got both need-based and merit.

    Thanks DesertCaliMom. Did he end up going to Norwich? Just wondering about his experience if he did.

    He is there now on a break between Adv GenCyber camp and Rook Week! He is excited and prepared. Between campus NU101 visit, local send-off parties and social media he has a large group of Rook siblings as support. He is also a volunteer on campus so he won't be bored at all! Feel free to PM me anytime.
