I know that this has been reported before, but as the new wave of applicants are busy awaiting word on their AROTC Scholarship status, I thought I would post this information so everyone could plan for their college expenses. If you are using your scholarship for Room & Board, it is more of a reimbursement. My son passed his test back in August and contracted back at then end of August. His books were paid, his stipend started back in early September and he has been paid for his day of travel to school. Room & board has not been paid though we were told we could expect it sometime around Nov. 15. Just thought anyone going this route would like to know so they can be well prepared prior to attending school.
