Seeking Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students Interested in Computing!

Do you have a deaf or hard of hearing student in your class who is interested in math, science and/or computing? Encourage your student to check out the Summer Academy for Advancing Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Computing, a summer program that explores careers in computing while receiving academic credits in a computer programming course, and developing an animation short.

The program, funded by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with support from the National Science Foundation, provides tuition, room & board and transportation expenses at no cost to selected applicants. The Summer Academy, located on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, begins on June 21 and ends on August 24, 2013.

The program is open to high school juniors and seniors as well as college freshmen and sophomores. Application deadlines are December 21, 2012 and January 25, 2013 (the latter deadline is on a space available basis). Visit:
