The U.S. Army Acquisition Support Center is currently accepting applications for the 2017-18 Senior Service College Fellowship program through March 23.
The SSCF program is a 10-month educational opportunity conducted under the auspices of the Defense Acquisition University at Aberdeen Proving Ground; Huntsville, Ala,; and Warren, Mich.
The call for applicant announcement is directed to permanent Department of the Army acquisition civilians who currently occupy positions in grades GS-14/15 or broadband equivalents.
Non-Army personnel are welcome to apply and must submit their applications in accordance with the Army DACM process. Non-Army applicants will be reviewed by the SSCF selection board along with Army applicants. However, they will be considered on a space-available basis.
The SSCF program prepares government civilians at the GS-14/15 levels or equivalent for senior leadership roles by providing training in leadership and acquisition. Program components include completion of DAU’s Program Management Course (PMT 401), courses in leadership, applications of acquisition to national defense issues, research in acquisition topics, mentoring and a distinguished speaker program.
