2.  Background.  The board, composed of one colonel and twenty lieutenant colonels, screened the records of the eligible population and selected the officers listed below.  The small number of GEP assignments available relative to the number of eligible officers makes selection a highly competitive process.
3.  Coordinating Instructions
3.a.  Officers selected as primaries who have not yet accepted career designation will be offered Career Designation (CD) in conjunction with selection.  Officers offered CD must accept or decline the offer by responding via MOL no later than 2359 on 7 December 2023.  Officers who do not respond to this offer by the deadline will be considered as having declined CD and will execute their existing EAS.
3.b.  Declinations.  Only officers whose end of obligated service (EOS) ends prior to the report date to their specific program may decline orders.  Officers eligible to decline this assignment have until 7 December 2023 to decline their selection.  Officers who decline the offer of CD in conjunction with this selection will execute their current EAS IAW MCO 1001.65A.  Officers who elect to decline their selection are deemed as resigning in lieu of orders.  Officers who resign in lieu of orders will exit the service NLT the last day of the month they were required to report to their future unit.  Officers choosing to resign in lieu of orders will exit the service no later than 31 June 2024.
3.c.  Officers who screen on the CY23/FY25 Captains and Majors Promotion Boards must be selected for promotion to retain their selection status.
4.  Selectees
4.a.  Olmsted Scholar Foundation sponsored board.  The officers listed below were selected by the CEB to interview for the Olmsted Scholar Foundation board in early 2024.  Selectees must submit the final application to MMOA-3 along with command photos as part of the selection process per reference (a).  Applications are due 2359 7 December 2023.  Final determination for Marine Corps Scholars will be made by the Olmsted Foundation.  Those chosen will be notified via separate correspondence.  Those not selected as Olmsted Scholars, will be assigned to other programs based on the officer's expressed preferences from the online survey (read in three columns):
