Information on ROTC Project GO




Project GO (Global Officers) is an initiative of the Defense Language and National Security Education Office which is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). Project GO provides fully funded scholarships to students commissioning through Air Force, Army and Naval ROTC to study critical languages domestically and abroad.


The goal of Project GO is to develop future military officers within all of the U.S. Armed Forces who possess the necessary linguistic and cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership in the 21st century operational environment. Project GO is open to U.S. citizens from all branches of ROTC.


The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of 24 universities nationwide that offers scholarships and learning opportunities through Project GO. Through Project GO at UW-Madison, students will gain critical foreign language proficiency and cultural skills necessary for their careers in a global environment. Students can fulfill language requirements without interrupting already busy ROTC schedules.


Funding is available for Summer 2017 domestic and study abroad programs in Russian, Indonesian, Hindi, and Urdu. Each course covers an academic year's worth of study in an intensive or immersive environment.


Project GO Funding cover most major expenses, including tuition, in Madison or abroad, plus a stipend to help cover living expenses. Actual amounts of funding will vary based on the program and living costs.
