LEAP spring application window delayed

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. — The spring 2014 Language Enabled Airman Program application period has been delayed.

The application window was scheduled to open in February. A new date to apply has not been set, and the spring application period may be cancelled, said program officials. LEAP administrators cited several factors in the decision to delay the application period, including resource constraints and technical issues.

Typically, LEAP application windows and their associated selection boards are held twice a year. The spring application period is typically for enlisted candidates, with officer and officer candidates applying in the fall.

“We’re very sorry to have to delay the application period for enlisted Airmen,” said Lt. Col. Julie Solberg, the Air Force Culture and Language Center’s Language Division director. “We know there are a lot of great enlisted Airmen with language abilities who can’t wait to apply for LEAP. We’re going to make sure they have that opportunity, either by holding an additional application period in the future, or by possibly combining the enlisted and officer application period in the fall.”

The updated application window dates will be posted on the Air Force Portal and on the AFCLC’s website as soon as details are available. For more information on LEAP, please review the Frequently Asked Questions document located at http://culture.af.mil/leap.
