Call for Applications: Autism Campus Inclusion 2020

Sunday, February 23, 2020

Contact: Haley Outlaw   houtlaw@autisticadvocacy.org  

Sponsored by: The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN)


The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) is now accepting applications for the 2020 Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) Summer Leadership Academy! The ACI Summer Leadership Academy helps autistic students learn to make their college campuses better for people with disabilities. ACI participants learn about making student groups, understanding disability policy, and talking to people in power. After the Academy, students get help from ASAN to meet their advocacy goals at their college. ACI participants will travel to Washington, D.C. from June 13th to June 20th, 2020. ASAN pays for travel and rooms for all ACI students.

To apply for Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI), you must:

  • Be on the autism spectrum, or have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (an Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, PDD-NOS, or another Autism Spectrum Disorder). You do not have to have an official autism diagnosis to apply.
  • Be a student at a college or university with at least one year left before you graduate. Students in TPSID programs (Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities), 2-year community colleges, 4-year colleges, and graduate school are eligible to apply.
  • Live in the United States, Puerto Rico or Canada (Please note: the policy sections of our program will focus on the United States).

ASAN especially encourages students of color, LGBT students, low-income students, students with intellectual disabilities, AAC users, and students from other marginalized communities to apply. Scholarship applications can be found at https://autisticadvocacy.org/projects/education/aci/. To apply, please send a completed application by Sunday, February 23rd, 2020 to Haley Outlaw at houtlaw@autisticadvocacy.org.
