The below research participant solicitation is being provided for informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no involvement in this research, but we believe that it may contribute to our research mission.

You are invited to participate in a survey to share your thoughts and feelings about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The purpose of this survey is to better understand how factors impact interest and motivation in STEM-related careers, including the role that mentors and others have had in shaping that interest. This survey is appropriate for you even if you never considered a career in the STEM fields. This survey is intended for adults who are legally blind or significantly visually impaired between the ages of 18-65 and who reside within the United States.

To participate in the survey, you must be an adult between the ages of 18 and 65 years old, be legally blind or significantly visually impaired, and reside within the United States.

All individuals who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of five gift cards valued at $100.

Please use the following link to take the survey.


This survey is voluntary. You may exit the survey at any time and your responses will not be used. Your personally identifying information will be kept confidential, however, the survey software will record your IP Address.
