I wanted to make folks aware of a great program the Army has for ROTC cadets called CULP -- Cultural Language Program. This program allows cadets to apply for a month-long summer program to work with a foreign military organization, take a langague course or participate in an humanitarian project in a developing country. The program's objective is to create army officers who are more experienced in dealing with foreign cultures. I believe this is the third year the program has been offered. My daughter is a freshman and was just selected to participate in a humanitarian project this summer in the Philippines. Other teams go to destinations in Africa, E. Europe, Asia and Central America. Teams are organized into groups of around 30 cadets who plan their mission, travel to their assigned country and work together on a project. The Army pays for the entire program and even provides a modest wage for the month. I think this is a fantastic opportunity and wanted those getting scholarships to be aware of it (I get the sense it is not that widely publicized). With LDAC taking up the summer after junior year, the program is ideal for freshmen and sophmores to apply for.
