Attention, College Students and Entering Freshmen! The American Council of the Blind has a great opportunity for students who are legally blind to earn a scholarship, whether you are ATTENDING a technical college, OR IF you’re an entering freshman, undergraduate or a graduate student. More than $55,000 in scholarships is awarded to students each year. To be eligible, you need to be legally blind, maintain a 3.0 GPA, and be involved in your school AND local community.
As a scholarship winner, you will experience ACB’s national conference and convention in July, where you will meet other students who share the same life experiences, create lasting friendships, and network with individuals who understand what you are going through and can help you ALONG your journey.
Applications for the 2020-2021 school year should be submitted online by Friday, February 14, 2020 at 11:59 PM (CST). Register for an ACB account to submit the application.
