Minuteman Scholarship Rules New Limits and Suspenses

Ambassadors have added an exciting new element to this program that invigorated the ROTC program with Army Reserve Candidates this past year. Cadet Command has changed the program from the free wheeling we experienced before anyone knew the power we as Ambassadors had. The following is a basic review of the new suspense’s and allotments. More will follow on this once we get the management organized. Hopefully we will be able to utilize all our ambassador allotments. We can share. I already used my two four-year scholarships and was queried yesterday regarding a three year scholarship for a college graduate who is interested in going back for nursing courses in order to earn a BSN. Am not sure how that will work with the ROTC program but nurses are in great demand (one of my nominees is for a BSN (a nursing degree)).
