Warrior-Scholar Project Extends Application Deadline for Academic Boot Camps

Applications from enlisted veterans now accepted until May 15, 2016


Washington, D.C. – The Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) today announced that it has extended the application deadline for its 2016 academic boot camps until May 15, 2016.


WSP’s academic boot camps, hosted at top U.S. universities between May and September each year, are immersive, intensive programs designed to help military veterans develop and rediscover the skills and confidence necessary to successfully complete four-year undergraduate degrees.

The Warrior-Scholar Project is a donor-funded program; courses are free of charge to all participants and include room and board. Participants are only responsible for travel expenses to and from the course. The academic boot camps are open to all enlisted veterans and transitioning service members who plan to pursue higher education. Apply for a spot in the program until May 15 by visiting the following link: https://warrior-scholar-project.slideroom.com/#/Login.


The WSP application requests details from prospective students about their military experience, academic background and future academic plans, and requires them to answer three short response questions. In the application, veterans can indicate their top three host-school choices for Warrior-Scholar Project boot camps, and if accepted, are placed in the most appropriate program based on preference, geographic proximity and availability during program dates. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and students may be asked to complete an additional phone interview.


WSP originally launched at Yale University in 2012. After steady expansion from 2013-2015, WSP is planning to host more than 200 veterans at the following universities in 2016 (locations and dates remain subject to change):

About the Warrior-Scholar Project

The Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) runs immersive academic boot camps hosted at America’s top universities for enlisted military veterans. The majority of enlisted personnel exiting the military have not been in a classroom setting for several years, and find it hard to transition, being unprepared for the fundamentally different social and cultural environment. WSP helps veterans rediscover and develop the skills and confidence necessary to successfully complete 4-year undergraduate programs in higher education. WSP unlocks their educational potential and transforms the way veterans view themselves as students.
