CNO SCHOLARS PROGRAM

1. IN ORDER THAT THE PRESENT POST GRADUATE [sic] PROGRAM MAY MORE ADEQUATELY FULFILL THE NAVY’S REQUIREMENT FOR WIDE DIVERSIFICATION OF FIELDS OF STUDY WITHIN APPROVED DISCIPLINES, I HAVE DIRECTED THE BROADENING OF THE PROGRAM SO THAT A SMALL GROUP OF HIGHLY SELECTED OFFICERS WILL BE AFFORDED AN OPPORTUNITY TO PURSUE GRADUATE EDUCATION AT COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF THEIR CHOICE IN FIELDS OF STUDY COMPATIBLE WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE SPECIALTY/SUBSPECIALTY AND WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF NAVY P-CODE BILLET REQUIREMENTS.

2. ELIGIBLE OFFICERS ARE THOSE IN THE GRADE OF LCDR AND BELOW WHO WILL HAVE COMPLETED AT LEAST ONE OPERATIONAL TOUR WITHIN THEIR RESPECTIVE SPECIALTY/SUBSPECIALTY. SELECTIONS FOR THIS PROGRAM WILL BE MADE BY A SPECIAL PANEL OF THE POSTGRADUATE SELECTION BOARD AND WILL BE LIMITED TO TEN OFFICERS ANNUALLY. SELECTEES MAY BE ASSIGNED TO ANY ACCREDITED AMERICAN OR RECOGNIZED FOREIGN COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY FOR WHICH THEY ARE LANGUAGE QUALIFIED AND CAN GAIN ADMITTANCE.

3. THIS SPECIAL PROGRAM, DESIGNATED THE “CNO SCHOLARS” PROGRAM, WILL BE ADMINISTERED SEPARATELY AND APART FROM THE REGULAR POSTGRADUATE EDUCATION PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM AND OFFICER STUDENTS ENROLLED THEREIN WILL BE UNDER THE DIRECT ADMINISTRATION AND ACADEMIC SUPERVISION OF THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL. OFFICER STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO EXECUTE AN ADDITIONAL SERVICE AGREEMENT OF ONE YEAR FOR EACH SIX MONTHS OR FRACTION THEREOF OF EDUCATION RECEIVED.

4. ALL ELIGIBLE OFFICERS HAVING SUBMITTED PREFERENCE CARDS FOR PG CURRICULA WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE CONSIDERED BY THE POSTGRADUATE SELECTION BOARD FOR THE “CNO SCHOLARS” PROGRAM. AT THE EARLIEST FEASIBLE DATE SUBSEQUENT TO SELECTION FOR THE PROGRAM, SELECTED CANDIDATES WILL VISIT BUPERS/CNO FOR ABOUT TWO DAYS, UNDER BUPERS TAD ORDERS, FOR THE PURPOSE OF ACADEMIC AND CAREER COUNSELING.
