Study and Work Abroad

Study and Work Abroad for All, 2003-2005, was a three year project funded by the Swedish Inheritance Fund (Allmänna Arvsfonden) that compiled information about over 1,100 universities and NGOs accepting persons with disabilities as students and trainees, respectively in over 60 countries.

The catalog contained information about university studies, traineeships and volunteer work for people with disabilities in Europe, North America and other parts of the world.

Our later project, Training as Vehicle to Employment (2006 - 2007), contacted governmental organizations and institutions in a dozen European countries to establish if their trainee and internship programs are open to qualified people with disabilities. The results were published here.

Today (2018) the catalog is out of date. We remove broken links and rarely add new links
