Culture and Language Immersion Internship Programs

 

The intent of this program is to provide Cadets overseas culture and language immersion opportunities through military-to-military (mil-to-mil) engagements and/or humanitarian service projects as well as visits to historically significant sites and serendipitous culture immersion opportunities. Itineraries are host country dependent and vary. Mil-to-mil engagements involve training with junior leaders and/or Cadets of host country military academies. Humanitarian service projects may involve work at orphanages or hospices or other on-going projects. The duration of these internships is approximately three weeks, including travel time. Several days of academic, administrative, and logistical preparation prepare teams prior to deployments.

 

Culture and Language Incentive Pay (CLIP-B)

 

CLIP-B is aimed at promoting the study of languages and cultural studies that are of importance to the Army. Language and cultural studies bonuses are graduated in increasing amounts and in sufficient dollar amounts to provide a lucrative incentive to persuade Cadets to begin to gain Culture and Foreign Language competence.
