For veterans, the transition back to school isn't always easy. That's where the Warrior-Scholar Project comes in.

"it was a pretty profound experience. When I came back to the states I realized I have a lot more to learn,” said one veteran taking part in the program.

The organization travels all across the country and supports veterans who want to earn a college degree.

“We give them classes on analytical reading strategies, study skills, time management and note-taking,” said Harry Foster, Warrior-Scholar Project humanities fellow for the organization. “We also talk about building a community on a college campus as a veteran.”

Founders said they want veterans to walk away with confidence that they can succeed at anything they set their mind to. The application for Warrior-Scholar 2021 Fall Program boot camps is open now, you can find the application by clicking here.
