Note: The Virginia Space Grant Consortium is committed to providing students with documented disabilities the same opportunities for enrichment and education as it provides for all students. Prior to acceptance into the Summer Academy portion of this project, students with documented disabilities requiring accommodation will need to submit current official documentation from a physician or other professional that will provide us sufficient information to assist in determining how the disability may impact participation, and how and whether we are able to provide reasonable accommodations. Details for submission will be provided at time of selection for the summer academies. There may be circumstances where we are not able to provide accommodations based on a case-by-case review of the circumstances and the nature of the requested accommodations.
