Project GO (Global Officer)

The University of Kansas is one of 25 schools across the country that participates in Project Global Officer, a Department of Defense initiative aimed at improving the language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills of future military officers. Project GO provides scholarships to ROTC students to study languages and cultures of the Middle East, Asia, Central Asia, and Africa. Beginning in 2013, KU will offer ROTC students, both KU and non-KU, the opportunity to study one of six critical languages (Arabic, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Persian, Russian and Turkish) in intensive summer courses, either on the KU campus or abroad.
