Participate in a Program

Traditionally, Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) is a transition program consisting of a series of highly intensive, totally immersive, one- and two-week college-preparatory academic boot camps hosted at America’s top colleges and universities. These boot camps customarily take place from May until August and are exclusively for current and former enlisted service members who are intent upon pursuing higher education. With the exception of travel (if applicable), these courses are offered at no cost to the student-veteran participant. 

Warrior-Scholar Project intends to return to on-site programming for summer 2021. However, due to pandemic-related uncertainties, we are unable to guarantee that all programming will be offered on site. Additionally, we will offer virtual programming. In the event that on-site programming is deemed unsafe, we will keep you informed if those programs are converted to the virtual platform. 

If you are interested in participating in our upcoming programming, we strongly encourage you to apply by the April 15 deadline and to send any questions to the outreach team at To view frequently asked questions about our programs, including virtual programming, click here
