ABOUT ROADMAPS & RAMPWAYS

Roadmaps and Rampways was developed from a research study on students with disabilities who pursued science or engineering degrees and successfully completed internships in their chosen fields. The study was conducted by the Project on Science, Technology and Disability of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and was funded by the National Science Foundation. The students profiled in the book participated in the ENTRY POINT! program of AAAS. For more information about internships for students with disabilities, click on ENTRY POINT!
