Internships for students in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska

DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) at the University of Washington supports college-capable students with disabilities as they pursue challenging academic programs and careers. The purpose of the project is to increase the number of people with disabilities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Students with disabilities can become part of the AccessSTEM Team, engaging in an on-line community of peers and professionals, paid internships, other work experiences, research opportunities, and other activities as they transition to college, graduate school, and employment. We are recruiting high school and college students with disabilities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska to join the AccessSTEM Team.
