Application Process

Interested candidates must apply to be considered for acceptance into the program. Students are referred by their school district and apply in the spring of the year before entering the program. Space is limited to approximately 8-12 students, per site, each year. The selection is carried out by members of the Project SEARCH Advisory Committee. The application enables the Committee to assess each candidate’s skills, abilities, interests, and background. Selected students will be matched to the most appropriate job site based on interest and skills.
