Project Venture at Michigan State

If your student is planning on enrolling in a 2 or 4 year college, Michigan State University is hosting a "pre-college" experience for students ages 16-18 with an identified disability.   As part of this experience, per their website, students will get to:

At Project Venture you will:

  • Talk directly with current MSU students with disabilities who have “been there” and understand the journey
  • Consult with university disability specialists to gain skills for college
  • Experience the latest assistive technology through breakout sessions
  • Attend a college class, stay overnight, and connect with other high school students with disabilities 
  • Become aware of self-advocacy skills and resources for a successful transition to higher education

The cost is $150 (though there is financial support considerations available) and it runs June 24-27, 2018.  

Apply soon!  They stop taking applications after the first 50 and then only accept 20 students.
