What is Project Global Officer (GO)? Project GO is a DoD-funded initiative to help ROTC students learn critical languages and study abroad. US military needs officers who know critical languages and understand other cultures. Therefore, the DoD is offering students via Project GO the opportunity to:
- Compete for a language study scholarship
- Compete for a fully-funded study abroad program
- Participate in summer programs and some academic year options
- Participate with no additional service commitment
What’s in it for me? Depending on the programs, cadets may be eligible for bonuses, stipends and language incentive pay as well as free study abroad opportunities. They may also be offered unique career and leadership opportunities later on in their military careers.
Who is eligible?
- Any current contracted or non-contracted ROTC student on track to commission
- All services- Army ROTC, Air Force ROTC and Navy ROTC
- Any year of undergraduate study with any language proficiency level
