IU Project GO
Project GO (Global Officers) is a collaborative initiative that promotes critical language education, study abroad, and intercultural dialogue opportunities through language study scholarships for ROTC students. The US military needs future military officers who possess the cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership in the 21st Century operational environment.
Project GO is funded by the Department of Defense through the Defense Language National Security Education Office (DLNSEO). Federal funds pass from DLNSEO to the Institute of International Education, which administers the Project GO institutional grants. On behalf of the federal government, IIE has awarded a Project GO grant to Indiana University.
