    We received this:

    "You will also be eligible to compete for an Emerging Leader Scholarship (ELS) for $12,000 over four years, $2,000 your first year, $3,000 each your sophomore and junior year, and $4,000 your senior year. We offer at least 200 Emerging Leader Scholarships to incoming cadets each year. The ELS is a merit-based scholarship, so you can combine it with a national ROTC scholarship, if you earn one. All ELS recipients will be mailed a notification letter no later than April 15th."

    Also--I read that email to indicate that there's no additional application to fill out for the ELS but I'm happy to be re-educated if you learn differently.

    Correct No separate process they will just send you a letter if you are awarded it with the yearly breakdown

    There was a VT Financial Aid office FB live a few days ago. I bet the recording is still on the VT Admissions FB page. I swear I heard them say on the broadcast that the ELS offers were already given out but I 1. Really hope I am wrong and 2. Was really sleepy and might've dozed on and off while listening ;)

    But if you check that recorded Live broadcast, they do address it. Let us know what you learn.

    At the Cadet overnight brief on Thursday, they said that the ELS letters are still being stuffed and mailed. They hope to have all of them mailed by tomorrow.

    So my son’s arrived in the mailbox on Saturday. It was a nice surprise as really wasn’t too aware of it.
