STEM Workforce Retention
To determine what military and commercial STEM workforce retention program models are being used by the US government or commercial organizations (5-7 examples). Research will be used to support content development for a STEM workforce acquisition and retention program.
Air Force - Defense Acquisition Workforce Development Fund
- The US Air Force uses the Defense Acquisition Workforce Development Fund to attract STEM graduates as well as to offer retention incentives.
- It also leverages Section 219 to enable its DoD Science and Technology Laboratory
Directors to direct 3% of appropriated funds in implementation of workforce development programs.
- Workforce development is also funded by the National Defense Education Program and STEM outreach programs.
- The NDAA Section 233 enables the DoD to provide retention incentives concerning military dependents in K-12 under its STEM outreach program.
Commercial - Transferrable Talent
Commercial - Corporate Universities
