The Autistic Self Advocacy Network will be holding a Summer Institute August 13-17. We are accepting applications to fill up to 20 slots for participation. This exciting opportunity is specifically for Autistic college students, whether you are in a certificate program, an undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate. If you have at least one year left in college, you can apply by filling out our application and essay questions and submitting them with your resume to [email protected].
The Summer Institute is part of our Autism Campus Inclusion project to increase visibility of Autistic students on college campuses. The week long training is to increase participants ability to create systems change, community and inclusive campuses. With training by top leaders in community activism, the Disability Rights’ Movement, and the Neurodiversity, participants will undoubtedly come away with knowledge and understanding on the way to work with existing structures to advance the principles that are meaningful to our community.
Applications are due by March 30, 2012 with participants being notified in May. If you have any accommodation needs for the application process, please direct your questions to [email protected].
