Since the 1990s, the disability rights movement has rallied behind the motto "Nothing about us without us." 

The message is clear: people with disabilities must be actively involved in creating the policies, products, and services intended to benefit them. Lived experience matters. As the world moves online, the motto also applies to digital accessibility. If we want websites, apps, and other digital products to provide the best possible user experience for people with disabilities, then tech professionals with disabilities must be involved in creating them.

This scholarship seeks to support students with disabilities who are pursuing STEM fields in order to use their unique talents and skills to create a more prosperous digital community. 

Any undergraduate or graduate student who has a disability and is pursuing computer science, web development, digital design, or a related STEM field may apply for this scholarship opportunity.

To apply, tell us how your personal experience with digital accessibility has impacted your academic and professional goals.
