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!
