Our mission is to empower enlisted veterans and service members and amplify their voices as civic leaders. We do this by providing them with a skill bridge that enables a successful transition to the classroom by making them informed consumers of higher education and increasing their confidence to apply to and complete rigorous degree programs at top-tier institutions, and by offering sustained support throughout their pursuit of higher education and into the workforce.
What We Do
Warrior-Scholar Project empowers servicemembers as they transition from the military to higher education and into the workforce. We host immersive, one and two-week college-preparatory academic boot camps at America’s top universities to currently serving military personnel and veterans, and community college workshops to veterans enrolled in community college. Our programs are offered at no cost. During programming, Warrior-Scholars are mentored by highly successful student veterans who have transitioned from the military to college. Host institution faculty volunteer their time, and our curricula focus on humanities, STEM, or business. Through faculty-facilitated lectures, study skills workshops, writing assignments, and tutoring, Warrior-Scholars acquire the skills to succeed in higher education and navigate the cultural shift from active duty military service to academia.
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."
