Reserve Recruiting in the College Market: New Educational Benefits Could Attract High-Aptitude Recruits. Research Brief
Asch, Beth J.; Loughran, S.
RAND Corporation
RAND found that, for most military service members, college attendance is compatible with Reserve service. Many reservists successfully combine service with both civilian jobs and college, and use the educational benefits available to them. However, those who score the highest on the AFQT may want to pursue college more intensively than the Reserve components allow, particularly given the increased possibility of activation or of longer activations. To attract these individuals, the military might consider programs that allow recruits to attend college without the risk of being activated with their Reserve units. (Includes 1 footnote.) [This research brief describes work documented in "Reserve Recruiting and the College Market: Is a New Educational Benefit Needed?" by Beth Asch and David Loughran.]
