Note:

The university sponsor provides scholarship funding for the course listed; however, the location of study may or may not be at that university’s campus, particularly in the case of study-abroad or combination courses.

Note:

  • Domestic courses take place on the sponsoring university’s local campus.
  • Study abroad courses take place on site at a partner institution in a separate country.
  • Combination courses involve both domestic and study-abroad components.
  • Academic Year Intensive courses are offered during the regular school year and require a substantial commitment of time due to the increased volume of material included in the curriculum.

Note:

Scholarship funding levels differ by program. Project GO programs do not fall under the auspices of ROTC; therefore, participants will not be on orders, will not receive per diem, and will not receive DoD-funded medical coverage as a result of participating in Project GO. However, many Project GO institutions provide living stipends for participants. Please view the “Scholarships” tabs for details.
