Are you a Computing Student with a Disability Looking for an Internship?
AccessComputing, a National Science Foundation funded Broadening Participation in Computing Alliance, provides mentoring and funding for career development activities for students with disabilities in computing-related fields. This includes:
MENTORING: Through our online community, students and mentors discuss a variety of topics. It is a place to connect with others to share your successes, ask for suggestions regarding any issues that may arise for you related to your disability, education or employment.
TUTORS: Struggling with a computing course? Each term, AccessComputing can fund a limited number of tutors for project participants.
CONFERENCES: AccessComputing may be able to provide funding for travel, registration, or accessibility-related costs. While we can't send every student to every event, we do fund many students each year to attend events like Grace Hopper, the Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing, the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference events, among others.
RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS: Every year AccessComputing funds students with disabilities to participate in the Computing Research Association's Distributed Research Experience for Undergraduates Program.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Age: Participants should be 18+.
Disability: We do require a self-report from you, discussing your disability and the ways in which it creates barriers for you. All information provided on the application is confidential and is only ever reported to the National Science Foundation in an aggregate manner.
Academics: Participants should be in a computing-related field.
WHEN CAN YOU APPLY?
AccessComputing does not have an application deadline; because of the way our funding is designed, we can accept applications at any time throughout the life of the AccessComputing program. We've been around for more than 15 years and have been successful enough that we're on our fifth consecutive NSF grant!
