The National Federation of the Blind believes in investing in the future by supporting the college education of deserving legally blind students. We urge you to apply to have the possibility of winning two scholarships, national and/or state.
The National Federation of the Blind’s annual scholarship program is the largest of its kind in the nation. Every year, the NFB awards more than $240,000 to blind scholars across the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico in recognition of their achievements and professional aspirations. Share this opportunity that invests in the future of blind people. Learn about the eligibility and requirements of the 2023 scholarship program at www.nfb.org/programs-services/scholarships-and-awards/scholarship-program.
