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.
