What We Do

In partnership with the nation’s top colleges and universities, Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) hosts intensive and immersive 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 We Believe

At WSP, we strive to provide inclusive support and skill bridge programming to ensure the success of veterans in higher education. We believe that the diverse experiences of enlisted service members and veterans provide them with unique skills that can propel them to succeed in higher education and beyond. We believe that all veterans should have access to higher education, and we are committed to working to address the educational gap that exists for minority service members and veterans.
