Disabled Students Program: UC Berkeley

DSP Volunteer Note-taking

The Disabled Students' Program (DSP) is looking for volunteer student note-takers who are enrolled in select courses, and are willing to share their notes. If you take detailed, well-organized notes, this is a wonderful way to make a positive difference for a fellow classmate—and receive a monetary stipend at the end of the semester. The stipend amount varies depending on the frequency or format of the course. The stipend will be prorated if you begin volunteering after 25% of the semester has elapsed or if notes are shared for only part of the semester.
