The Air Force Science & Engineering Palace Acquire Operational Training (S&E PAQ) Assignment program enables the service to provide entry-level STEM opportunities to individuals outside of the Air Force. During the 3-year paid internship, the Air Force provides tuition for the participants to complete their Master of Science degree. A 2-year on-the-job training program is also available. The Air Force also recruits future STEM employees from universities through the Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) scholarship-for-service program. Applicants can search and apply at USAJobs.gov. For more information, visit the Air Force Civilian Service website under the 'About' link and PAQ openings listed at the 'Find A Job' link.
