THE STORY:

Veterans not only have the potential to succeed in college, but to be leaders in the classroom. We seek to unlock that potential.

Typically, veterans arrive on campus after having spent several months or years in combat away from any sort of academic environment, they are unfamiliar with the college landscape, and they are thrown into a sea of 18- and 19-year-olds who are fresh out of high school. Unfortunately, these academic, cultural, and social challenges often lead to veterans dropping out of college before earning their degree.

Your donation will help fund The Warrior-Scholar Project 2013 -- a two-week-long "academic boot camp" designed to help veterans transition from the military to college.

 

The sights and sounds [of the Warrior-Scholar Project] are a distant echo, but the memories and the lessons learned ring loud and clear every day
- US Army Corporal Stephen Lewis (ret.) 

The Warrior-Scholar Project has been the most valuable educational experience of my lifetime
- US Army Master Sergeant Josh B. 

Some may claim this was an intellectual beating; I agree, but on the positive
- US Navy Seal Command Master Chief Bryan Yarbro (ret.)
