NFB Scholarships Available

The NFB annually awards thirty national scholarships. Blind college students in the United States and Puerto Rico have the opportunity to win one of the scholarships, worth from $3,000 to $12,000. To be eligible for consideration, each applicant must (1) be legally blind in both eyes; (2) reside in the United States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico; (3) be pursuing or planning to pursue a full-time, postsecondary course of study in a degree program at a United States institution in the 2013 scholastic year, except that one scholarship may be given to a person employed full-time while attending school part-time; and (4) participate in the entire NFB national convention and in all of its scheduled scholarship program activities, July 1 through July 6, departing on July 7.

In addition to a scholarship, each winner will receive assistance to attend the 2013 NFB National Convention in Orlando, Florida, providing an excellent opportunity for high-level networking with active blind persons in many different professions and occupations.
