    I have a cadet who is in the USAR (not SMP) and our program would like to offer him a scholarship. However, he wants the option of going active duty so GRFD is out of the question. My understanding is that his unit needs to release him so that he may accept an ROTC scholarship. If this is correct, how do I go about doing this? A specific regulation, memorandum example, etc would be very helpful. Thank you

    In our brigade the letter of release is required to request the scholarship. Need to get his chain of command to provide the conditional release. DD form 368
