    Hey I was given an AROTC scholarship Presbyterian College and I was talking with one of the PMS and they informed me that in taking a language throughout my 4 years of school, with the stipulation that I have above (if I remember correctly) a 3.0 in that class, I will be eligible receive an additional 100$ a month from the Army on my stipend.

    Contact your PMS if you are looking into language and see if they offer the same. They should since it comes from the Army itself but you never know.

    Son took Chinese and Russian. Only the Chinese counted, and the paperwork was a bear. He ended up getting the stipend in one lump sum at the end of the school year last year. This year, he hasn't seen the money yet. You must take an approved language (list constantly changes) and keep up with the paperwork. Good Luck!! This fall will be the third year this is offered, so the kinks should be out of the system by now. When you meet with your ROTC academic adviser, mention this right away and you can get an early start on the paperwork.

    I am going to take 4 years of chinese, I believe that, as singaporemon said, it is only a list of modern "needed" languages in todays military such as Arabic, Chinese, I think Korean is on there and so on and so forth.
