PROCESS FOR ASSIGNMENT YEAR 2020 (AY20)
1. This ALCOAST supersedes REF (A) and re-solicits applicants for a one year Federal
Executive Fellowship at the U.S. Naval Institute. The new deadline is 06 September 2019.
Officers who already submitted applications and meet eligibility requirements in
Paragraph 4 will need to reapply.
2. Overview. Located at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, the U.S. Naval
Institute (USNI), a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization has provided
an open forum for honest debate, informed discussion, and professional development
for members of the Naval Services. The vision and mission of the USNI is to give
a voice to those who seek the finest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard by
providing an independent forum for those who dare to read, think, speak, and
write to advance the professional, literary, and scientific understanding of sea
power and other issues critical to global security. USNI is noted for its
flagship magazine, "Proceedings," and a variety of historical and professional books.
   a. The officer selected for the Naval Institute Fellowship will conduct and
publish research on priority Coast Guard and homeland defense issues, and serve
as a conduit between the Coast Guard and the Institute. The USNI fellow will
advise the Institute on the Coast Guard’s position on issues and provide feedback
on perspectives the Institute receives from the open forum.
   b. In addition to developing awareness and expertise for future operational
and staff assignments, the fellow will be accorded Naval Institute senior staff
status, which entails frequent interactions with the Board of Directors,
professional editors, staff, and USNI authors.
3. Eligibility. This program is open to all operational specialties. In addition
to the application guidelines set forth in REF (C), applicants:
   a. Must be selected for, or currently serving in the grade of, O4;
   b. Should have an established operational career path;
   c. Should apply from an operational assignment, or one that otherwise allows
enough time to complete the fellowship and potential follow-on staff assignment
in enough time to meet operational currency requirements.
4. Follow on Tours. The USNI Coast Guard Fellow will be considered for a follow-on
assignment in positions that involve execution of the Defense Readiness mission,
including assignments related to the OAR-12 career path: Headquarters Office of
Counterterrorism and Defense Operations Policy (CG-ODO), various liaison and
staff positions in the Pentagon, liaison assignments with other agencies, services,
and combatant commands. Tour lengths range from two to four years.
