The Raven Scholars Program at the University of Idaho is funded by a donation from Tom Alberg and Judi Beck of the Raven Foundation. This 5-year pilot project began with a group of 4 student participants in the fall of 2011.
We provide academic, organizational, and social supports for University of Idaho students who are on the autism spectrum. Program staff include a manager, an AmeriCorps member, and peer mentor interns. Our interns receive College Reading and Learning Association mentor training and certification. In addition to providing direct supports to students, we are available for trainings, presentations and planning meetings with faculty and staff.
