The Army is now offering a financial incentive for recruiting new college Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) cadets who take courses in critical foreign languages. New ROTC cadets who sign a contract to enter the Army (including the Army Reserves and National Guard) are eligible for the program starting this fall that pays $100 a month for the first year of participation, $150 a month for the second year of language study, $200 a month for the third year, and $250 a month for the fourth year (maximum $3,000 over an academic year).

Languages covered by the program are: Arabic, Persian, Chinese, Korean, Pashto (Afghanistan and Pakistan), Urdu (Pakistan and India), Indonesian, Swahili (east Africa), and Hausa (west and central Africa). ROTC cadets and other interested students can contact their military science professors at their colleges or universities for more information and to sign up.
