We are excited to announce a generous gift from The Beveridge Family Foundation to support Warrior-Scholar Project’s Amherst College boot camp.
The Beveridge Family Foundation funding adds support to Warrior-Scholar Project’s current partnership with Amherst College to offer free academic boot camps on the university’s campus. Since 2017, Warrior-Scholar Project and Amherst College have offered an academic boot camp with a humanities-focused curriculum free for enlisted veterans, teaching transitional academic skills like analytical reading, study skills, time management, and seminar preparation. This year, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Warrior-Scholar Project will offer this academic boot camp virtually, utilizing Amherst College faculty and veteran peer mentors to help veteran participants adjust to the national switch to online learning.
About Warrior-Scholar Project
Warrior-Scholar Project empowers servicemembers as they transition from the military to higher education. We host immersive, one and two-week college-preparatory academic boot camps at America’s top universities to currently serving military personnel and veterans. These academic boot camps 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.
