  • build a community of support;
  • access corporate mentors to develop new career skills;
  • understand individual strengths and how to maximize those strengths;
  • identify strategies and resources to increase connections and success on campus;
  • gain confidence in problem-solving; and
  • develop skills to help foster academic and career goals.

Apply now for the 2024 cohort.

Fellows are competitively selected from a national group of applicants who:

  • are U.S. military service members or veterans
  • are undergraduate students or pursuing a master’s degree; and
  • maintain a 2.0 GPA or better.

Selected candidates for the 2024 in-person cohort will participate in a one-week intensive residency program the week of July 15, 2024. After completion of the residency, Fellows will engage in an online community throughout the subsequent semester.
