Other eligibility requirements may apply and individual circumstances may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

How much do I have to pay to participate in Project GO?

Project GO scholarships provide full funding to students, including tuition, room and board, textbooks, visas, insurance, and travel expenses to and from the destination. If you have any other questions about out of pocket costs, please contact the program coordinator.

Would participation in Project GO extend my service commitment?

No, using a Project GO scholarship on a summer language program does not require any additional service commitments and will not negatively affect your ROTC scholarship.

What kind of medical information do I need to know before going abroad? Do I need vaccines?

As Morocco is a developing country, it is important to be up-to-date on regular vaccines. For more information regarding the CDC’s recommendations, please visit this website: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/morocco
