GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. The purpose of this MARADMIN is to announce the selection board results for the CY21 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Service Chiefs Fellowship Program (SCFP). The DARPA SCFP (DSCFP) convenes quarterly and lasts approximately 12 weeks. The intent of this program is to increase the awareness of key Marine Corps commands of DARPA technology development efforts as well as enhance the professional development of top Marine Corps officers. Upon completion of their assignment to the DSCFP, fellows serve as informal liaisons between DARPA and the services based on the close relationships developed during the program and an enhanced understanding of the DARPA technology development process.
2. Selection to the CY21 DSCFP was extraordinarily competitive with a large number of highly qualified applicants and with a limited number of opportunities due to COVID-19 restrictions. Considerations included program objectives, operational experience, academic background, MOS diversity, and current assignment. Primary and alternate candidates are identified as well as tertiary candidates who may be afforded an opportunity to participate if COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Those not selected are encouraged to reapply in the future. Selectees should contact the listed MARADMIN POCs via email to confirm their availability.
