The DARPA Service Chiefs Fellows Program (SCFP) was established to immerse outstanding military officers and government civilians into imaginative and innovative, fast-paced science and technology research. This three-month fellowship provides participants with insight into cutting-edge technology while potentially facilitating the development of future DARPA technologies.
Fellows from each Service have the opportunity to dive deeply into specific technology development in areas of interest to them and to their respective Service, as well as a chance to understand the breadth of DARPA research. This introduction to the DARPA innovation process allows Fellows to gain valuable research experience and return to the field with an appreciation for the Agency’s role of supporting DoD missions by preventing and creating strategic and technological surprise.
Upon completion of their assignment to SCFP, Fellows serve as informal liaisons between DARPA and the Services, reflecting the close relationships forged during their tenure and the experiential understanding of DARPA's technology development process.
