The University of Michigan is a proud partner of the Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP). WSP empowers servicemembers as they transition from the military to higher education by hosting immersive, one and two-week college-preparatory academic boot camps at America’s top universities to currently serving military personnel and veterans. U-M currently hosts the WSP Humanities program each summer. These academic boot camps are offered at no cost. During programming, Warrior-Scholars are mentored by highly successful student veterans who have transitioned from the military to college. Through faculty-facilitated lectures, study skills workshops, writing assignments, and tutoring, Warrior-Scholars acquire the skills to succeed in higher education and navigate the cultural shift from active duty military service to academia.
The Univeristy of Michigan is ranked as the 7th best univeristy for veterans by US News and World Report.
