UW Study Abroad has sent several veterans and actively serving Guardsmen and Reservists abroad on our programs. We recognize that some of you have traveled quite extensively, while others may not have. Either way, studying abroad gives you the opportunity to explore another culture and/or language in an academic setting.
Many veterans can use their benefits to help fund their study abroad experience. Contact University Veteran Services for more information and review their website for specifics.
Project GO is a Department of Defense initiative aimed at improving the language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills of current ROTC members. Project GO at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was able to fund the study of Hindi, Indonesian Russian, and Urdu for summer 2020. Summer 2021 languages will be posted on the Project Go website when they are known. Study of these critical languages may take place on campus at UW-Madison through intensive or immersive summer programs, or through study abroad programs. You are encouraged to apply to the program options for which you are eligible.
