Anyone heard anything?  This is getting kinda silly, at least post an update or a quick email.

Still nothing here.  :(

I contacted NHQ more than a month ago, waited three weeks and got no response. Emailed a second time and still haven't heard... The lack of communication is pretty disappointing.

Guys... it's a volunteer organization. Yes, NHQ is paid staff, but they still have a lot on their plates. Be patient and wait.

That's usually my general stance, but in this case there are very serious real-world consequences.
Bills have to be paid, travel arrangements made, and there are a number of activities which have already started.

At this point cadets are likely starting to make go / no-go decisions, which in turn impact the viability of the activities
in question.

To me, the wait is no big deal. I completely understand they're probably extremely busy, what with Encampment season around the corner, NCSAs to plan and coordinate, etc. However, the complete lack of any sort of updates/communication to candidates is what disappoints me. It doesn't take long to post a simple Facebook message on the national page explaining the estimated release date. Or better yet, the scholarship page on the official website since it's clear they've been updating the page with new submission deadlines for finalists.  :)

I can agree with this stance as well!

Things back up. It gets busy. Stuff happens. But you still communicate why it's held up. You don't leave people in the dark.

Talking with the full-time crew, it appears that after a final QC review, the announcements go out today.

Wing Commanders received them this evening (a standard courtesy practice).
They'll post tomorrow and recipients will get their notice tomorrow.

Do they all get notified either way or just the recipients?
