The program defines neurodiverse learners as those with academic challenges related to dyspraxia, dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyscalculia, autism spectrum disorder, Tourette syndrome or related conditions. Applications for the 2022 program are now available online. 

NNL camp is a “hybrid” program with some students joining online on some days and onsite at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus on others.

  • Have aptitude and interest in attending college.
  • Currently be a high school sophomore, junior, or senior.
