DO-IT Scholar Application
DO-IT is actively recruiting students for our capstone program, DO-IT Scholars. For this unique program we are seeking students who

- 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.
Students are encouraged to apply by January 10, 2012 to be reviewed in the first round of the selection process. Applications received after that date will be accepted and reviewed until all openings are filled.
