Recommend a DO-IT Scholar!

Tamitha Tidwell, DO-IT Staff

DO-IT is currently recruiting Washington State high school students with disabilities who are interested in pursuing a postsecondary education. 

DO-IT Scholars prepares students for success in college and careers. The DO-IT Scholars program includes two consecutive Summer Study sessions with the University of Washington, where students will 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 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.

The DO-IT Scholars program is free of charge. Please have the student apply or leave a teacher or parent recommendation online. Applications are due by January 30th!
