Facility Major Requests vs. Declared Major

Postby airforce » Sun Oct 29, 2017 6:15 pm

I'm applying for the aero/astro engineering discipline, but the AFRL Munitions Directorate (among others that I'm interested in) doesn't list aero/astro as one of the STEM fields in their short description. Do you folks think it's worth ranking them as one of my preferred facilities, or would their system probably filter me out?

You're not filtered out by a system at the directorate level. I'm astro and was selected by SMC. He just filtered by people interested in working for my facility he didn't filter by major and read through apps before selecting.

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you).
