Degree Program — In April, applicants can apply for the Academic Degree Training (ADT) Program. ADT is a college scholarship program for Army civilians.  CP29 uses the program and has been able to fund degrees or portions of degrees for a small number of Army civilians each year. The program is open to NAF and APF employees who meet qualification requirements such as status as a full-time employee and two or more years of service as an Army civilian. There are no grade restrictions. Degrees must be related to the employee’s job. Anticipated return on investment is a key factor in selection.
