Rejection Email (for 1st round?)

Postby annonymous » Mon Apr 09, 2018 6:12 pm

I received the rejection email:

Dear SMART Applicant,

Thank you for applying for the Science, Mathematics, And Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship for Service. At this time you have not been selected for an award. The Department of Defense will continue to make awards over the next few weeks. If the Department of Defense is interested in offering you an award at a later date you will be notified.

If you do not receive further correspondence, this will serve as your final notification regarding the 2018 application cycle. Please consider applying again in the future. We appreciate your interest in the SMART Scholarship Program.


But is this really a rejection or simply you didn't get award for the 1st round? Has 2017 applicants ever received a similar email like this from last year???

This is the blanket rejection letter. It leaves open the possibility for an award to be given out if other scholars reject the award.
