    Are you talking about the MM scholarship for the fall 2017 or for fall 2018? My nephew is currently at BCT at Ft. Benning as a split op. He will be a HS senior in the fall, and was planning on applying for the MM Scholarship in DEC; then AIT in early summer; and hopefully The Citadel after that.

    Can you tell me the steps that you went through in applying for the MM Scholarship?

    Well I recieved it for fall 2017 and basically I had applied for the normal ROTC 4year but was only offered the ECP, so I contacted my schools cadre and they pointed me to the direction of the ROO officer for the national gaurd and from there I reapplied for the Minuteman and was blessed enough to recieve it. Best of luck to your son.

    Thanks. When we informed the ROO at The Citadel he said when the time came to contact him, so that he could walk us through the steps. It seems like (based on the 4YR National ROTC Interview invite) that he will be at the Interview at the end of the month. However, I can find any information on what the steps are for the MM Scholarship. I found a wealth of information, including how to video's, step by step guides, etc. for the national scholarship but not for the Minutman. Any clue where these are at?

    Its essentially a interview and a resume which they look over. Be prepared for a lot of paperwork.

    Paperwork? What kind of paperwork? Is it basically the same type of items for the National Scholarship?
