Jul 31, 2017

Nathan Schumacher from Edmonds is among 45 college-bound high school students with disabilities now participating in the annual DO-IT Scholars Summer Study program at the University of Washington.

DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) is funded by the state of Washington, the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education.

Students are now spending 10 days living on campus, participating in an intensive program designed to promote college and career success.

The students are learning about challenging careers in fields such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Returning second year scholars stayed on campus for one week.

DO-IT Scholars targets high school sophomores and juniors with disabilities in Washington State who are interested in pursuing higher education. The program seeks to encourage their participation in challenging academic programs and careers.

Students apply to the program during the fall with recommendations from their parents, teachers, and counselors.
