National Federation of the Blind 2016 Scholarship Program
Deadline: March 31, 2016
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 2016, 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 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 <http://www.nfb.org/scholarships>www.nfb.org/scholarships for 
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
