According to official sources, the 2016 MAVNI program will be ending soon. As of 3 June 2016, there are approximately 600 slots left for the program.
We are currently in the 9th month of the fiscal year, it’s safe to assume that all slots will end by mid-July. I’ve estimated that the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC), enlists approximately 500 MAVNI applicants per month.
Now USAREC is trying to determine the best course of action, that will allow the last vacancies to be filled, while simultaneously meeting the Regular Army’s accession mission.
The following courses of action are under consideration:
Regardless of what decision USAREC makes, it’s clear that the MAVNI program is coming to a close. Secondly, it’s important that current applicants strongly consider the opportunity to join the Active Army, considering the possible limitations on Reserve enlistments.
There are no updates on the 2017 MAVNI program…
As of April 24th, 2016, there isn’t an established date for the close of the program. I would recommend that you determine your qualifications for the Army and then proceed to contact a recruiter to discuss the specifics of your situation. The MAVNI program has been around for several years now and it has become an instrumental program for the recruiting force. In today’s recruiting environment, if would be extremely difficult for us to achieve our mission without the willing volunteers that constantly apply for the MAVNI Program.
