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

Since 2007, San Diego State University has awarded scholarships to ROTC students to participate in its domestic summer intensive language programs in Arabic, Persian-Farsi, and Russian languages. The program also supports domestic program graduates to sustain and/or enhance their language proficiency during the academic year in order to prepare them to study abroad. The goal of Project GO is to develop future military officers who possess the cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership in the 21st century operational environment.
