Welcome TO PROJECT Global Officer (GO)

Project GO is a nationwide program open to all qualified ROTC students offering fully-funded opportunities in critical language education, overseas study, and cross-cultural experience. Through Project GO, future military officers develop linguistic and cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership for all Services in the 21st century operational environment. Since 2007, Project GO has provided more than 6,000 students with opportunities to study culture and 19 languages, both domestically and abroad in 33 countries around the world.

Beyond improving my language proficiency, [Project GO] let me connect with people in the country. Project GO and the skills it provided were really a stepping-off point for me, in terms of growing my professional competencies.

My participation in Project GO absolutely made me a better officer and helped prepare me for my career. Through Project GO, I learned how to respect all people and cultures completely different from my own, to see things from a different point of view, and so much more. While I did not speak much Swahili on my deployment, the values and viewpoints I developed through Project GO were essential to helping my team succeed with our mission while in Iraq.

Project GO offers an unparalleled opportunity to attend intense and effective language learning programs. Through three summers of Project GO Indonesian scholarships, not only did I make strides in my language abilities, but I also learned about US-Indo relations and the importance of cross-cultural competency in joint operations. Project GO helped me develop a network of language professionals and separates me from my peers because I am fluent in Indonesian and have a better understanding of cultural differences. After Project GO, I will continue to study Indonesian while in the Air Force through the Language Enabled Airman Program (LEAP).
