Texas A&M University: Humanities and STEM Academic Boot Camps

The above dates are tentative and subject to change.

Apply now to be part of our free two-week STEM academic boot camp for service members and veterans in partnership with Texas A&M University!

The first week of the program is our humanities academic boot camp, which includes daily seminars taught by campus professors who are leaders in their field, readings and analysis of challenging texts on the tradition of American democracy, and morning discussions on each reading in preparation for seminars, writing workshops, and assignments.

The second week 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 two-week 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.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX0 – A two-week academic boot camp began Sunday for veterans transitioning from active service to life as college students.

The program is hosted by a nonprofit called Warrior-Scholar Project that’s partnering with Texas A&M and other universities across the country. WSP launched its first boot camp at Yale University in 2012 and is now in its 5th year partnering with Texas A&M.

Transitioning from military service to life at a large four-year university can be tough, even intimidating, for some veterans. It’s why current Texas A&M student veteran Robert Liu signed up for a WSP academic boot camp back in 2018. The WSP says the camps are designed to help student veterans acclimate to civilian life and successfully complete undergraduate programs.
