GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. The purpose of this MARADMIN is to announce the selection board results for the CY23 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Service Chiefs Fellowship Program (SCFP). The DARPA SCFP (DSCFP) convenes quarterly and lasts approximately 12 weeks. The purpose of the fellowship is to familiarize Marines with DARPA's functions and efforts as the DOD's advanced Science and Technologies (S&T) organization in order to stimulate innovative improvements in the Corps, and to facilitate experimentation and transition of novel capabilities into the fleet. 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 CY23 DSCFP was extraordinarily competitive with a large number of highly qualified applicants. Considerations included program objectives, operational experience, academic background, MOS diversity, and current assignment. Primary and alternate candidates are identified. Those not selected are encouraged to reapply in the future. Selectees should contact the listed MARADMIN POCs via email to confirm their availability.
