In collaboration with JPMorgan Chase & Co., the University of Delaware developed the Spectrum Scholars program as a system of supports and career development opportunities for select UD undergraduate students with autism. 

Each year, the program accepts approximately 10 eligible students into a cohort for comprehensive services featuring one-on-one coaching, group coaching and peer mentoring meetings. A dedicated career counselor supports students in their career development. The program is highly collaborative, focuses on each student’s strengths, and is driven by each student’s goals and motivations. 

Overseen by UD’s Center for Disabilities Studies, Spectrum Scholars also offers general support to autistic students across UD’s campuses while promoting autism acceptance and inclusion to individuals and groups throughout UD and in the surrounding community.
