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 2015, 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 2015 NFB annual convention in Orlando, 
Florida from July 5th through July 10th, 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 2015 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, 2015. Go to

complete rules and requirements.

Please also consult your state president as many of our state 
affiliates also award scholarships.  A list of state affiliate 
president information can be found
