Spring Internship Application Deadline: TBD
Selection screenings are held in April and October. (Applications for NNPP internships are accepted and screened year round). If you are interested in an internship, you are strongly encouraged to submit a package 12 months prior to your PRD. Selections are made based on an officer’s sustained superior performance and billet availability. Billets will be offered to selected officers based on board ranking and PRD. If selected for a program, you can be assigned to any billet location. Application packages may be submitted prior to earning a warfare qualification; however, a warfare qualification must be obtained prior to negotiating orders upon selection. At completion of an internship officers must agree to remain on active duty for an additional tour.
Your package must be received no later than the specified deadline for each board and contain the following:
NOTE: REMOVE PII (i.e., SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, LAST FOUR OF SSN, DATE OF BIRTH, etc.) FROM ALL DOCUMENTS PRIOR TO SUBMISSION. DOCUMENTS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN ONE PDF IN THE ORDER LISTED BELOW.
1. Endorsement letter from Commanding Officer
2. Additional endorsement letters
3. Warfare qualification letter (by time you transfer)
4. All Previous Fitness Reports
5. Other information for consideration
6. College transcripts (NACO internships require 24 business related credit hours)
7. Current ODC, OSR, and PSR
Upon submitting an application, Intern applicants must halt all orders negotiations with the LT Shore detailer and/or the Operational Detailer. Intern applicants who fail to be selected for an internship may begin renegotiating orders upon the intern selection release.
Notification of selection will be via FLASH FROM THE CHIEF. Billet assignments will be based on a combination of board rankings, billet requirements, and Community Interest Lead inputs. You can expect reassignment on your PRD. Fleet manning takes priority, you will be rolled to your internship once properly relieved.
