Two scholars enjoying their time at Summer Study.

DO-IT Scholars Program

The DO-IT Scholars program prepares young people with disabilities for college, careers, independent living, and leadership roles in society:

  • experience college life on a university campus in the summer;
  • explore careers and the world of work;
  • learn to select and use adaptive technology, applications software, and Internet resources;
  • learn about reasonable accommodations at school and in the workplace;
  • network with peers and working professionals with disabilities;
  • gain requisite knowledge to enter and succeed in college and challenging careers; and
  • participate in leadership opportunities that promote accessible environments, worksites, and community activities.

Washington State high school sophomores and juniors with disabilities may apply. The suggested application due date is January 31. Learn more and apply at www.uw.edu/doit/programs/do-it-scholars.
