Apply for an NFB Scholarship

Are you a legally blind college student living in the United States or Puerto Rico? The National Federation of the Blind annual scholarship 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 2016, up through grad students working on their PhD degrees. Google has committed to award an additional $1,000 to each of our winners in 2016. 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 2016 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, complete the official 2016 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 through March 31. Go to
the NFB Scholarship page for complete rules and requirements
