Apply now to be part of our free STEM or business and entrepreneurship academic boot camp for veterans in partnership with Yale 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.

For the second week, participants can select either STEM or business and entrepreneurship academic boot camps.

The 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.

The business and entrepreneurship academic boot camp prepares students for the demands and challenges of a business-related undergraduate degree program with a focus on entrepreneurship. This program includes daily seminars on the fundamentals of business degree programs, interactions with business leaders, and experiential learning opportunities such as a group entrepreneurship competition, negotiations, group problem-solving, business presentations, and utilizing business software.

In an effort to help student veterans acclimate to civilian life and successfully complete undergraduate programs, national nonprofit Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) has partnered with Yale University to host a virtual Winter STEM Academic Boot Camp from Dec. 13-18. The intensive physics-based curriculum, offered at no cost to enlisted service members, is designed to help veterans prepare for an academic environment while learning strategies to become better students.
