Commander-endorsed nomination packages for Air Force officers interested in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) fiscal year 2016 Service Chiefs Fellows Program are due to the Air Force Personnel Center March 16. Nominees must be active duty major-selects, majors, lieutenant colonel-selects or lieutenant colonels who have a minimum secret security clearance and who are considered highly competitive for promotion to the next grade. Program participants provide input into technology development efforts during the program, and continue to serve as liaisons between DARPA and their branch of service after completion. DARPA funds all temporary duty travel, lodging, and per diem during the program. For more information about Air Force personnel programs, visit the myPers website.
