In this thesis the author examines the impact of enhanced educational benefits in the form of a Navy College Fund (NCF) on Navy recruiting. This thesis examines the effects of the Army College Fund on the accession of high-quality recruits using statistical analysis of the Army's experience with the Army College Fund. The economic supply model is used to forecast the number of high-quality recruits the Navy could expect if a similar program were implemented for the Navy. An attempt is made to compare the cost-effectiveness of highquality enlistees with that of lower-quality enlistees. In addition, the costs of the proposed NCF is compared with the costs of alternative recruiting policies. The results suggest that a new NCF could offer a cost-effective method to increase the quantity of high-quality enlistees. Several recomiT\endations are offered regarding the implementation of such a program.
