PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is accepting applications from senior enlisted personnel (E-7 through E-9) for the Exercise Advanced Education Voucher (AEV) program 2023 (FY23).

The AEV program provides financial assistance to select senior enlisted personnel to earn Navy-relevant post-secondary degrees through off-duty training.

“The AEV program supports the continued educational development of senior enlisted leaders as part of the Navy’s seasoned naval warrior team,” said Albert Sharlow, NETC AEV program manager. “The program provides the Chief, Senior Chief, and Petty Officers of the Navy with a platform to pursue higher education that makes them more effective leaders with diverse sets of knowledge, skills, and experiences to harness, maintain and maintain an edge in today’s rapidly changing security environment. .”

Who is eligible?

Applicants must be high-performing active duty senior personnel (E-7 through E-9) who are transferring or currently serving ashore with sufficient time ashore to complete a master’s degree program. Applicants in sea duty may apply provided they submit a study plan that shows the ability to complete the study program as specified above.

For FY23, applicants must have already obtained a bachelor’s degree from a tertiary institution accredited by an agency recognized by the Ministry of Education.
