Project Global Officer, or Project GO, is a Department of Defense initiative aimed at improving the language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills of future military officers. Project GO comprises a number of individual programs, hosted by U.S. institutions with large ROTC student enrollments, and each program provides scholarships for critical language study and culture training, both in the U.S. and abroad. Since 2007, Project GO institutions have provided over 3,500 summer summer scholarships to ROTC students for critical language study. Project GO supports programs in languages the Department of Defense has designated as "strategic", including but not limited to Arabic, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, and Korean. For a full list of languages, please visit http://www.rotcprojectgo.org.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree on track to commission through the Army, Naval, or Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC). Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic merit, language experience, cultural sensitivity, leadership, diversity, and a commitment to the Project GO mission. Project GO Scholarships provide full funding to students, including tuition, room and board, textbooks, visas, insurance, and some travel expenses.
