National Federation of the Blind Scholarship
Each year at its national convention in July, the NFB gives a broad array of thirty scholarships to recognize achievement by blind scholars. All applicants for these scholarships: must be legally blind, and must be pursuing or planning to pursue a full-time, postsecondary course of study in a degree program at a United States' institution during the scholastic year of the application deadline, except that one scholarship may be given to a person employed full-time while attending school part-time, and must participate in the entire NFB national convention and in all scheduled scholarship program activities. In addition to a scholarship, each winner will be brought to the National Federation of the Blind Annual Convention in July at Federation expense, providing an excellent opportunity for high level networking with active blind persons in many, many different professions and occupations. The scholarship application deadline is March 31, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
