Article briefly provides an overview of Project Career, an interprofessional demonstration designed to support the academic and career success of college students who have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Project Career merges the use of cognitive support technology (CST) and vocational rehabilitation practices to improve academic outcomes of civilian and veteran post-secondary students with TBI, ultimately leading to enhance employment opportunities. The project attains this goal through: (1) psychometric evaluation of postsecondary students with TBI relative to their assistive technology, personal, academic, and career objectives and needs; (2) provision of CST training to 150 students over the 5-year demonstration; (3) matching students with mentors; (4) provision of vocational case management; (5) provision of job development and placement assistance; and (6) provision of an electronic portal regarding accommodation and career resources.
