which service do you want a scholarship for? i just went through the process of applying for a NROTC scholarship for fall 2008, myself.HELP PLEEAASE! I sort of have a clue but the counselors at my school are completely no help, and I can't really ask military "people" yet. Any clues? 11th grade is almost over!
Donsauga- Each of these services has a different procedure- and some are a lot more centralized than others.The links that Antoinette posted above were good for the Army and tell you pretty much all you need to know. I don't know about the AF- but the Navy and Marine Corps is pretty much a completely centralized decision process - I believe that they have centralized boards that make the offers- not necessarily the school ROTC detachment.Try looking at these websites:

The NROTC website currently says "Check back periodically for dates to apply for the 2009 Scholarship Year." If I recall, I think the application opened in April. Because my son had started his application then, he was on the recruiter's radar. The recruiter wanted to interview him in July; but, he told him his essays weren't ready. The recruiter told him to take his time and do a good job on the essays, and that the final deadlineinthenavy-- You mention having an interview in august or september-- when does an applicant begin the process of applying for a scholarship?
