For many military veterans, despite the challenging experiences they have faced while enlisted, stepping foot into an academic environment can nonetheless be intimidating because of the foundational academic skills required to be successful in college. The Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) was established as an introduction to the demands of college life, offering a free, immersive academic boot camp for current and former military service members who wish to pursue higher education. As a WSP partner university, Notre Dame welcomes 15 active or veteran military members for a week each summer to help prepare them for enrollment at colleges and universities around the country.
