Free college preparation offered
The University of Washington’s DO-IT Scholars program is seeking Washington state high school sophomores and juniors with disabilities who are interested in preparing for college and challenging careers.
DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology) introduces high school students with disabilities to technology, peer support and work-based learning in an effort to help them be successful in a college environment.
Selected applicants will travel to Seattle over three summers to take part in a one- or two-week program in which they participate in academic lectures and labs; live in residence halls; and practice skills that will help them become independent and successful in college.
Students are encouraged to apply by Jan. 10, but enrollment continues until all positions are filled. To apply, contact the DO-IT office at 206-685-3648 (V/TTY), or download forms at www.washington.edu/doit/Programs/scholar.html.
