Opportunities! News - Fall 2012

Dear Student,

This newsletter comes from AccessComputing. A National Science Foundation funded project, AccessComputing serves to increase the participation of people with disabilities in computing fields. We apply evidence-based practices to help students with disabilities successfully pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees and careers in computing fields.

On page two of this letter, you’ll find a profile of Katie, an AccessComputing student team member, and information about a resource called the Student Lounge.

Page three talks about internship opportunities, undergraduate research, and how to become an AccessComputing team member.

Page four highlights the Business Leadership Network, a student organization called Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities, interesting videos, and the Summer Academy for Advancing Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students.

The insert lists information about a variety of exciting internship and scholarship programs.

We sincerely wish you a successful and enjoyable college experience. To request this newsletter in an alternate format, contact Brianna Blaser, AccessComputing Coordinator/Counselor, at 206-685-3648 (V/TTY) or
