This study is an analysis of the United States Marine Corps Enlistment Bonus Program (EBP). The study's main objectives were to determine the effect of the EBP on enlistment supply and report measures of cost effectiveness, and determine the effect of the EBP on recruit quality, affirmative action, and early separation from the Marine Corps. Based on our analyses we believe the EBP should be continued. Also, we believe numerical quotas for the bonus program should be set high enough so that all funds allocated for bonuses are used.
