[Recommend a Scholar]

Thank you for connecting us to great DO-IT Scholar applicants so far for 2022.

DO-IT Scholars prepares students for success in college and careers. The DO-IT Scholars program includes two consecutive Summer Study sessions on the University of Washington (UW) campus where Scholars live in a dormitory, participate in labs and lectures with UW faculty, work on projects together, and explore campus and Seattle-area resources. This allows students to experience college life and develop their self-advocacy skills. Each Scholar is provided with a laptop and any necessary assistive technology and works with a DO-IT technology specialist on setup requirements. Throughout the school year, Scholars connect with program staff, mentors, and each other. They participate in DO-IT events, complete projects, and receive valuable information and support for the transition to college. Students are encouraged to consider a variety of postsecondary programs that best suit their academic interests and unique circumstances.

DO-IT Scholars are not charged for instructional materials, housing, meals, activities, and accommodations such as sign language interpreters at Summer Study sessions and may apply for funding to assist with the costs associated with travel and/or hiring personal care assistants.

Preferred applications fit the following categories (*see below for FAQs):

·    are a high school sophomore or junior
