First to clear up some confusion. US Army ROTC Cadets are not "required" to take languages to be commissioned. They are highly encouraged to take language classes in order to make them a better officer. To provide incentive, Department of the Army ROTC offers Cultural and Language Incentive Program Bonus to all CONTRACTED US Army ROTC Cadets if they take a "strategic" language. Strategic languages are defined by regulation and policy so contact the CULP program to find out if the language you are considering is covered. English, Spanish, German, and Italian are not covered but most others are. The program pays the Cadet a bonus ranging from $250 up to $500 per credit hour with a $3000 per year cap based upon the difficulty of the language if the Cadet passes with a B or above grade. It must be applied for before the class is taken but won't be paid until a passing grade transcript is presented. Often, the reason the Cadet doesn't get paid in a timely manner is because 1) they didn't apply before enrolling for the course or 2) they didn't present the required transcript after completing the course. If you are interested in finding out more about the program, contact the International Programs Branch of the US Army ROTC Cadet Command or goggle the Cadet Command website. Second, Project Global Officer is a Department of Defense language program that applies to all enrolled but not necessarily contracted Cadets. It applies to all three services, Army, Air Force, and Navy. It is also restricted to strategic languages and is organized in a completely different way.
