The Logistics Fellows Program is a year-long, hands-on leadership and management development program under the direction of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Logistics & Materiel Readiness. It is designed to enhance the career development of selected mid-level logistics professionals in military grades 0-4 to 0-5 and civilian grades GS-13/-14 and equivalent who have demonstrated significant potential for advancement in the logistics career field. Nominations are due by January 30, 2017 and must be accompanied by a letter of endorsement from the nominating Service 4 at the GO/FO/SES level.
