Once Awarded

Congratulations!  The Department of Defense is investing in your future by funding your language and cultural studies. By accepting the Project GO Scholarship, you will be expected to meet the following tasks and requirements.

Hindi: Complete a SASLI application by clicking here.  Note: You will need to submit your transcripts and a “statement of purpose” as to why you want to take Hindi via email to sasli@lpo.wisc.edu.  The answers you used for the essay questions in your Project GO application may assist you in writing your “statement of purpose.”

Indonesian: Complete a SEASSI application by clicking here.  Note: You will need to submit your transcripts and a “statement of career plans” as to why you want to take Indonesian via mail to the SEASSI Office (see address on their application page). The answers you used for the essay questions in your Project GO application may assist you in writing your “statement of career plans”.

Russian: You will not need to complete a separate language application (like the languages above). If you are a non-UW-Madison student, you will need to apply to become a Special Student through the Division of Continuing Studies before enrolling in your language course. We will send you more information in an email. There is no cost for this application. 

Turkish: Complete an APTLI application by clicking here.  Note: You will need to submit your official or unofficial transcripts and a “statement of purpose” as to why you want to take Turkish as part of the APTLI application process. The answers you used for the essay questions in your Project GO application may assist you in writing your “statement of purpose.”

UW-Madison Additional Tasks:

  1. If you are a non-UW-Madison student, you will need to apply to become a Special Student.  Project GO, APTLI, SASLI or SEASSI will send you instructions on how to do this.
  2. Enroll in your designated language course per the instructions from Project GO, APTLI, SASLI or SEASSI.
  3. Apply for university housing. Project GO @ UW-Madison reserves double-room housing in the dorms for Project GO students. On-campus dorm housing is required for non-UW-Madison students. Please let us know immediately (prior to application) if you have any issues with this requirement.
  4. Enroll in eRefund in order to receive your scholarship funding sooner, rather than much later.

Project GO Tasks:
1. Register in the Project GO Student Certification System (SCS) Database (we will send you instructions later).
2. If you are a heritage speaker or have taken any courses in the language you are awarded to study, you will need to complete an Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI/c) prior or at the start of the program.
3. Attend the Project GO Orientation meeting within 24 hours of the first class starting.
4. Complete an Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI/c) at the end of the 8-week course.
5. If you are a student studying Intermediate Russian, you will need to take the Flagship Listening and Reading exams near the end of the 8-week course.
6. Complete an end of Project GO program survey.

Last, but not Least:

  • Awarded students are expected to attend the entire 8 week program unless there are medical emergencies. Language courses are intensive, and one missed day is equivalent to missing one week of class.  Any requests for leave must be made in advance and approved by the Project GO office.
  • Awarded students are expected to abide by UW-Madison’s code of conduct and ROTC standards.  We reserve the right to report any serious lapses in your personal conduct to your ROTC Commanding Officer.
