California Institute of Technology: STEM Academic Boot Camp

Apply now to be part of our free one-week STEM academic boot camp for service members and veterans in partnership with the California Institute of Technology!

This week-long STEM academic boot camp prepares service members and veterans for the challenges and rigor of a STEM bachelor’s degree program. Using a physics-based curriculum, veterans and service members will gain skills to help them succeed with their transition from the military to higher education.

During this week-long boot camp, students are taught by professors from our partner college and mentored by peers who have completed the program and successfully transitioned to college.

Soldiers are no strangers to boot camp, but those who participate in the Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) trade drill sergeants and physical training for world-class researchers and an intensive introduction to education in science and technology. This summer, 17 active-duty service members and veterans completed a weeklong academic boot camp featuring scientists from Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which the Institute manages for NASA.
