Our DS has been awarded a 4 year type 2 AFROTC scholarship. We are still waiting to hear if he has received an appointment to the Academy. The Academy is his first choice but the scholarship will work with his second choice. He has 2 other scholarships already awarded which with the ROTC scholarship will pay all but about $4500 per year including room and board and books. Expensive private college so we are pleased with these awards. I read on another thread about still paying the deposit to attend the other college even if he receives an appointment just in case he gets injured. My question is if he receives an appointment and gets injured before taking the Oath is the ROTC scholarship in jeopardy? He would have the summer to recoup before starting college in the fall. The ROTC scholarship is $18,000 per year which is a huge amount of money to lose. I have already checked the AFROTC paperwork. He can accept the scholarship even if he receives an appointment to the Academy. Once he signs the Oath the scholarship is revoked. From what I have read on this forum we are best to accept the ROTC scholarship and send in the registration deposit to the other school. If he gets an appointment we are out the money for the deposit ($175) but if he gets injured we still have a Plan B (as long as he is ok by the time school starts). I have read so much and my head is spinning. I just want to make sure we have all the bases covered. He is a very bright student and don't want him to miss any opportunities he may have.
