Building National Security Leaders Today and for Tomorrow
The Defense Civilian Training Corps (DCTC) is a NEW program for students to build civilian careers in the Department of Defense. DCTC is a highly selective program that provides a 100% tuition scholarship and a direct pathway into the Department of Defense (DoD) civilian workforce.
- High achieving students with a demonstrated interest in making a meaningful difference as part of an innovative and interdisciplinary team are selected from majors such as finance, engineering, sciences, business, and public policy to join a DCTC cohort at host universities across the United States.
- In addition to classroom learning, DCTC cohort scholars will participate in several hands-on challenge projects, integrating diverse thinking to solve complex, real-life problems.
- Summer internship placement with DoD labs and organizations will embed DCTC scholars within the civilian workforce for first-hand experience collaborating with dedicated, results-oriented teams working in every field from engineering to finance and supply chain management.
- Upon graduation, scholars will join the DoD full-time with the support and accelerated career advancement opportunities necessary to achieve their professional ambitions.
