Dear Student,
 
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 Shaun, an AccessComputing student team member, and how to become an AccessComputing team member.
 
Page three talks about attending conferences as a student, a scholarship website, and how to get involved with undergraduate research.
 
Page four highlights a student organization called Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities, new AccessComputing resources, the Business Leadership Network, an interesting video, and information about 
DO-IT.
 
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 blaser@uw.edu.
