dc.description.abstractThis study explores the need for incentives for Navy Chaplain Corps recruiting and recommends changes in the existing incentive program and a potential change to the way the Navy accesses chaplains. Using data from three surveys conducted with seminarians, junior chaplains and senior chaplains, information on the efficacy of various programs was gathered and changes recommended, where deemed appropriate. Additionally, recruiting incentives and programs from the Army and Air Force were explored for possible inclusion in the Navy recruiting program. Findings indicate that changes in the recruiting incentive program may be warranted. While recruiting bonuses may seem attractive, they are not currently required, but may become instrumental in the future. A promising alternative to current recruiting is restructuring the way chaplain qualification is determined and the grade at which chaplains are accessed. Repayment of student loans as a recruitment option is only an incentive for those having incurred student loans. Other incentives for chaplains who engage in recruiting activities and provide viable candidates are also explored in this paper.en_US
