LOCK HAVEN – Alexandro Dunkelberger, a first year biology student at Lock Haven University and ROTC Officer Cadet with the Bald Eagle Battalion, recently received a scholarship from the Go Russian Language Project at the University of Pittsburgh.

The highly competitive Project Go Scholarships at the University of Pittsburgh offer intensive Russian language programs from first to fourth year to ROTC students nationwide. Over eight weeks, students cover the equivalent of one academic year of language training.

Pitt Project Go scholarships help students progress quickly towards their degree requirements, provide study abroad opportunities, and increase the competitiveness of ROTC students for additional scholarship opportunities – like Boren and Critical Language scholarships – and during commissioning.

Fellows receive:

-Complete courses for an 8 credit University of Pittsburgh language course held in Pitt or Narva, Estonia. In the event that public health conditions necessitate the cancellation of in-person programs for 2021, an 8-credit online program covering equivalent course material will be offered.

–Full coverage of travel, accommodation and manuals.

–A living allowance to pay for meals during the course.

CDT Dunkelberger is excited about this experience and hopes it opens up more opportunities for him. He is always on the lookout for new skills and starting to learn Russian could improve his future military career. He enjoys his time with ROTC because of the opportunities it provides and it allows him to work towards his goal of commissioning in the military.

The LHU Bald Eagle Battalion is headquartered at Ulmer Hall at Lock Haven University and includes cadets from LHU, Mansfield University, Lycoming College and the Pennsylvania College of Technology. They are committed to training future officers of the United States Army and actively recruiting students who have the scholar / athlete / leader mindset.
