Jun 9, 2023 

AIRC Fellow Karen DaPonte Thornton welcomes the Defense Civilian Training Corps (DCTC), a Congressionally mandated initiative AIRC is piloting at North Carolina A&T, Purdue, the University of Arizona and Virginia Tech that awards scholarships and other opportunities for college students to prepare for careers in the DoD. “DCTC will enable the DoD to strengthen its DoD civilian workforce pipeline, strategically building talent pools to reflect the DoD’s demand signals for talent and skills for the future,” Thornton wrote.
