My DS just got a call tonight from his NROTC officer asking f he would consider an ISR (instant scholarship). We didn't even know this program existed. DS has completed application to USNA, is 3Q with presidential (MOC Nom packets ready to go) and CVW in Oct. USNA and USAFA are his first 2 choices. From what we understand, if he was to accept the ISR through NROTC he would be committing to $180,000 scholarship to use at one of his 5 choices. What we don't understand is what type of commitment he will be making if he does get this scholarship and accepts it this early. Being the USNA and USAFA are his first choice (NROTC and AFROTC are plan b) he is not sure what he should do. Does anyone have any experience with this type of scholarship and the detail? Thanking you in advance for replies!
