There’s a lot of excellent work being done on college and university campuses to assist student veterans, and we wanted to share an example of one such project: Stanford University’s 2 to 4: A Veteran’s Accelerator. It’s designed for veterans attending community colleges who are exploring a four-year degree.

Veterans attending community college during the school year can apply for a free scholarship to an 8-week summer program at Stanford. The program builds on their military training and experiences, and is aimed at giving them the academic skills necessary to earn a four-year degree. Each summer’s 20 program participants will live on campus, have access to individualized academic advising and earn Stanford credits.
