Welcome to Project GO at umd!
Project Global Officer (GO) is a Department of Defense initiative that promotes critical language education, study abroad, and intercultural dialogue opportunities through language study for ROTC students. The U.S. military needs future military officers who possess the necessary critical language and cross-cultural communication skills required for effective leadership in the 21st century operational environment.

As part of the Project GO Program, the University of Maryland will offer innovative, intensive domestic and overseas language instruction to ROTC students from a nationwide audience with the goal of helping students to reach an International Language Roundtable (ILR) 1 proficiency level in Arabic or Persian. Accepted students will receive full scholarships for participation in these programs.
Project GO students studying with UMD during the year or summer will have access to a wide variety of resources to support their studies, including an Arabic library with over 1,000 books, hundreds of in-language films for both Arabic and Persian, 24-hour student lounges with Arabic and Persian enabled keyboards, and an engaged and supportive learning community. Students who will take part in our summer overseas program will benefit from pre- and post-program online resources, activities, and virtual language partners via an individualized student portal.
