About Warrior-Scholar Project

Warrior-Scholar Project empowers servicemembers and veterans 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 colleges and universities. 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 and entrepreneurship. Through faculty-facilitated lectures, study skills workshops, analytical reading, 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.
