Sophomores and Juniors – DO-IT Scholars – 1/30/2018

The DO-IT Center (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) serves to increase the participation of individuals with disabilities in challenging academic programs and careers. We hope to have your help finding great students for our capstone program, DO-IT Scholars. For this unique program we are seeking students who

•           are sophomores or juniors in high school in Washington State;

•           have an aptitude for and interest in attending college;

•           have any disability such as, but not restricted to, mobility impairment, learning disability, sensory impairment, or health impairment; and

•           are motivated to participate and interested in interacting with other students with a variety of disabilities.

For two to three summers, DO-IT Scholars attend a two week, live-in summer program on the University of Washington, Seattle campus, where they learn about college selection, challenging careers, self-advocacy, and adaptive technology. DO-IT Scholars are loaned computers and adaptive technology needed to participate in electronic mentoring and Internet support year-round. This program is provided at no cost to the participants.

Students are encouraged to work on and submit their applications in the fall and winter since priority is given to applications received before January 30, 2018. Applications received after January 30 will be considered on a space-available basis. Please feel free to the link to the application at http://www.uw.edu/doit/Programs/scholar.html.
