Do-It Scholars

The DO-IT Center (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) serves to increase the participation of individuals with disabilities in challenging academic programs and careers.  There is no cost to families for DO-IT programs.  They are seeking students who

  • are sophomores or juniors in high school in Washington State;
  • have an aptitude for and interest in studying at a college;
  • have any type of disability recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act, including both those with or without IEP or 504 plans; (documentation not required); and
  • are motivated to participate and interested in interacting with other students with a variety of disabilities

DO-IT Scholars attend a live-in Summer Study program on the University of Washington Seattle campus, where they learn about college selection, challenging careers, self-advocacy and adaptive technology.  Phase I DO-IT Scholars attend a ten-day 2023 Summer Study, returning the following two summers, as Phase II Scholars (2024) and Ambassadors (2025), for further college and career preparation and an internship. DO-IT Scholars are loaned laptop computers and adaptive technology needed.
