From the Battlefield to the Classroom
Jeff Ryder, WorkingNation
Roughly 200,000 military veterans transition into civilian life every year. Some of them go directly into the job market. Others, armed with the post-9/11 GI Bill, see a college education as a pathway to success after their military career has ended.
The Warrior-Scholar Project is designed to help veterans make the jump from service to studies. The effort, which includes mentoring and other forms of guidance, is built on a series of highly intensive one- and two-week academic boot camps held at various colleges and universities around the country.
