This paper describes two recent programs--the NSF Navy Civilian Service Program and the Virginia Demonstration Project that are dedicated to the revitalization of the Navy Research Enterprise.


The Department of the Navy (DoN) is one of a growing number of Federal agencies which is expressing concern about its ability to meet its future science and technology (S&T) workforce needs. This situation has grown more critical in recent years due to the large numbers of retirements of S&T personnel expected in the coming decade because of the aging of the workforce, the decreasing number of US students pursing advanced studies in engineering, and intensified recruiting of these students by industry, academia, and the government1,2.
