2014 DO-IT Scholar Application

Monday, October 21, 2013

DO-IT is actively recruiting 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.

DO-IT Scholars are loaned computer equipment and adaptive technology needed to participate in electronic mentoring and Internet support year-round. For up to three summers, DO-IT Scholars attend a one-to-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.

Applications are accepted throughout the school year for the upcoming summer. However, priority is given to those applications received by January 30. Applications received after that date are considered on a space-available basis.
