Six Air Force captains selected for Prestigious Ph.D. program

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- The selection board for the Chief of Staff of the Air Force Captains Prestigious Ph.D. program has chosen three primary and three alternate captains to participate in 2018. 

The program exposes rising officers to a unique learning experience at top-tier universities. The captains will obtain doctoral degrees in strategic studies beginning in 2018, in order to build a cadre of strategic thinkers.
 

Primary selectees are:
Capt. Elisha Henry, U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa
Capt. Kevin Rossillon, 603rd Air Operations Center, USAFE
Capt. Bradford Waldie, 510th Fighter Squadron, USAFE.

Alternate selectees are:
Capt. Nathan Dial, 41st Electronic Combat Squadron, Air Combat Command
Capt. Wesley Meredith, Space and Missile Systems Center, Air Force Space Command
Capt. Philip Tice, Curtis E. LeMay Center, Air Education and Training Command.
 

Intellectual development of officers relatively early in a career, especially in critical thinking skills, will result in Air Force and joint leaders who have the ability to communicate at a strategic level with civilian leadership across enterprises.

 

Degree options include Asia Pacific studies, history, political science, international relations, economics, philosophy, international business relations, international security studies and political systems and theories.
