Abstract:

The Senior Service College Fellowship Program SSCFP is one of three processes to achieve a U.S. Army Military Education Level - 1 MEL-1 degree. No more than 40 LTCs are selected for this program. The SSCFP provides selected officers and opportunity for serious research in a particular strategic or specialized area of study at educational institutions and federal agencies. In 1990, a survey of 103 SSCFP graduates was conducted to provide feedback on the efficacy, utility, and focus of the program. The data indicated the SSCFP graduates felt that the program is worthwhile and prepared them well for Army assignments. All educational objectives were well accomplished - both military and cognitive growth objectives. The fellowships were seen as challenging and worthwhile for the individual officer, the civilian academic community, and the Army. The most positive aspects were the overall educational and social experiences, the opportunity to associate with well-known academics and policy makers, as well as the freedom to grow. The only negative was the lack of opportunity to interact with their USAWC classmates.
