Project GO is a nationwide program providing training in selected strategic languages for ROTC students at 18 universities in the United States.

MENAS cooperates with the leadership of each ROTC service branch represented at UA, to include the Army, Air Force, and Naval ROTC programs. Project GO accepts applications from all members of UA's ROTC community and beyond.
