The Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) Summer Leadership Academy, a project of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) made possible with the support of the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation and the HSC Foundation, prepares Autistic students to create systems change on their college campuses. Participants acquire valuable skills in community organizing, policy formation, and grassroots & campus-based activism. Alumni receive support and technical assistance in implementing their advocacy goals following the training.
The 2014 ACI summer leadership academy will take place in Washington, D.C. between June 8 and June 14. Applicants must identify as Autistic and be current college students with at least one year remaining before graduation. Travel and lodging are fully covered by ASAN.
Applications are due by March 7th, 2014, and may be completed by either filling out the PDF or typing your answers in a separate document. Please direct completed applications and any inquiries about the training or the application process to ASAN’s Leadership Programs Coordinator, Natalia Rivera Morales, at NRiveraMorales@autisticadvocacy.org.
