Question about funding for the CEC collegiate program

#1
I am just curious as to why the Navy funds the CEC collegiate program. From my understanding, the CEC community is extremely competitive with no shortage of applicants, so I’m curious as to why the Navy funds something designed to attract applicants. To be extremely clear, I am very much interested in the program and I am working as hard as I can in college now to be as competitive as possible, but I am still curious. Also does anyone have any thoughts as to the future of the program? I do not become eligible to apply until the summer of 2020 and I'm worried it will be discontinued before then. Thank you!

You might not understand, but you answered your own question.

Another way too look at it is that, if an applicant is found to be acceptable, the community would like to assure that they keep that member. Having additional pay while in class should help that applicant focus on maintaining and passing classes on time to graduate as a somewhat "known value" in terms of scheduling new folks coming into the program. This is not isolated to CEC. The NUPOC program appears to be similar in getting what they view as quality applicants into the program relatively early and provide an opportunity to get through with little other factors. Also, an argument could be made that the program is competitive with significant volume of applicants because it is a pretty solid deal for students that are already planning on working toward said major with a goal of serving in that community. Just my opinion to be taken with a large grain of salt.
