Hi all, I was a Marine from 2011-2015 (2146), and started going to college soon after my EAS. I had come across some great resources in the past years and wanted to share. These aren’t promotions since they are all non-profits or a free book that helped me in college. These are all free programs by great nonprofits.
The Warrior-Scholar Project: I attended their free program at Texas A&M and it was amazing. Basically a boot camp on how to be a student. I t was great because I was a horrible high school student. https://www.warrior-scholar.org/
Service 2 School: Another great non-profit that paired me with vets who could help me with applications and essays. https://service2school.org/
Posse Foundation for Veterans: I applied but never followed up, but this non-profit can help veterans pay for their if they are accepted. They partner with specific schools, so it’s not for everyone. https://www.possefoundation.org/shaping-the-future/posse-veterans-program
College Sucess Textbook (FREE): Basically just an instructional textbook on how to build good student habits and skills. If you would prefer an advice-based book, How to be a Straight-A Student rings a bell. https://openstax.org/details/books/college-success.
