Warrior-Scholar Project empowers enlisted veterans and transitioning service members to succeed in higher education.

What We Do

In partnership with top colleges and universities, Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) hosts intensive, one and two-week college-preparatory academic boot camps for enlisted veterans and transitioning service members. Boot camps are offered in three disciplines: Humanities, STEM, and Business & Entrepreneurship.

 

Through faculty lectures, workshops and research projects, tailored assignments, and one-on-one tutoring, warrior-scholars acquire the skills to succeed in higher education and navigate the cultural shift from military service to college. Throughout the course, warrior-scholars are mentored by student veterans who have successfully transitioned from the military to college.

 

WSP also offers workshops tailored to address the unique needs of veterans enrolled in community colleges and targeted programming for marginalized veterans, such as our Women Veterans Empowerment Dialogues. All programming is provided at no cost.

What our alumni are saying

"The program definitely helped me out when it came to my confidence, motivation, and enthusiasm towards school. I am really happy that I attended this course and I will continue to bring to the table all the knowledge and technical skills I learned from WSP everywhere I go."

—Dylan Pierre Louis, WSP Texas A&M University alumnus

“WSP is a unique experience in the sense that it not only prepares you to be successful transitioning into the classroom, but it also provides a very solid network of veterans who went through this before you.”

—Fei Fei Chen, WSP Harvard University alumna

"The opportunity at Yale University was life-changing as it provided me with a newfound confidence in my academic future. Learning various tools such as note-taking, essay writing, and breaking problems into steps helped ease my mind that the transition from Warrior to Scholar will now be a whole lot easier. Being at Yale and being surrounded by peers and fellows who currently attend prestigious universities also helped me realize that the same future isn’t impossible for me."

—James Ines, WSP Yale University alumnus
