|The response to our call for applications for the Autism Campus Inclusion project's Summer Institute has been wonderful. With 3 more weeks to send in an application, it's not too late to be considered for the program.|
Applicants should be current Autistic college students who have a passion for disability rights and want to implement systems change on their college campuses. Any current Autistic student, certificate, undergraduate or graduate, with at least one year remaining on campus will be considered with applications due March 30, 2012.
What does it mean to implement systems change? It's about creating a community with Autistic students and others with disabilities. It's about making a meaningful impact to allow for a more inclusive education experience. With some of the top leaders in community organizing, disability rights and Autistic rights, participants are sure to take away the skills they need to do all of this and more.
If you feel you would like to participate, please fill out the application and submit it with your responses to the essay questions and your resume to Melody Latimer at email@example.com . All questions and accommodation requests should also be directed to Melody.
We look forward to hearing from you.
