Warrior-Scholar Project Eases Transition

SOUTH BEND — Lorenzo Perez served in the U.S. Marines for eight years as a rifleman.

Now out of the service, he’s taking on another challenge as he makes the transition back to civilian life — pursuing a college degree.

Helping veterans like Perez navigate the transition from the military to higher education is the Warrior-Scholar Project — a one-week academic “boot-camp” hosted locally by the University of Notre Dame, which seeks to prepare veterans for a future in the academic world.
