Scholarships for ROTC Students to Study Arabic Abroad

Welcome to UW Project Global Officer (GO)!

As an ROTC student, you may already be aware that the U.S military has a strong need for future officers with strategic linguistic and cross-cultural communication skills. This comprehensive language learning scholarship will deepen your understanding of the world while preparing you for this competitive military experience you will encounter post-graduation.

The University of Wyoming is honored to be a part of this significant endeavor for the first time. UW Project GO promotes effective leadership skills, critical language learning, and a study abroad experience with intercultural dialogue opportunities for ROTC students.

We offer:

FREE 1-on-1 Tutoring!

FREE Cultural Immersion Activities!

FREE Language Mentors!

Scholarship Opportunities!


● Our hybrid scholarship program is unique in that we prepare students for their best study abroad experience with online classes and a brief in-person cultural immersion experience domestically so that students can hit the ground running!

● UW’s partnership with a top-notch language institution in Jordan that is highly qualified in working with DoD personnel (West Point cadets, US Army Special Forces, etc.), allows for a seamless transition from domestic Arabic learning experience to a well-organized study abroad experience tailored to meet the needs of ROTC cadets.

● The University of Wyoming will offer online Arabic classes that will allow students to continue studying virtually for the remainder of their college careers which is especially beneficial for those ROTC students at institutions that do not offer Arabic Language instruction.

“The Project GO program provided me with invaluable experience to study Arabic within the Middle East. Living and studying immersed in the target language provided me with insight and the ability to practice using my language skills daily. Prior to departing on Project GO, I studied at the University of Wyoming's Arabic Program which greatly prepared me for my future endeavors abroad. The Project GO program was an experience that influenced my future studies in the Middle East and pursuits of the Arabic language”- Mat Waugh, UW and Project GO Arabic student 2021
