Are you a legally blind college student living in the United States or Puerto
Rico? This annual program offers 30 scholarships worth from $3,000 to $12,000
to eligible students, from high school seniors beginning their freshman year in
the fall semester of 2014, up through grad students working on their PhD
degrees.  These merit scholarships are based on academic excellence,
community service, and leadership. In addition to the money, each winner will
receive assistance to attend the July 2014 NFB Annual Convention in Orlando,
Florida, providing an excellent opportunity for high-level networking with
active blind persons in many different professions and occupations.  To
apply, read the rules and the Submission Checklist; by or before the deadline,
complete the official 2014 Scholarship Application Form (online or in print),
supply all required documents, and request and complete one interview by an NFB
affiliate president (unless the president requests a later date). Applications
are accepted for five months, from November 1, 2013, to March 31,2014. Go to www.nfb.org/scholarships for complete rules and requirements.
