The American Council of the Blind has a great opportunity for students who are legally blind to earn a scholarship, whether you are going to a technical college, an entering freshman, undergraduate or a graduate student. Over $45,000 in scholarships are awarded to students each year. To be eligible, you need to be legally blind in both eyes, maintain a 3.3 GPA, and be involved in your school/local community.
As a scholarship winner, you will experience firsthand 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 with your journey.
The 2019 ACB scholarship application is now open! Access the form at acb.org/2019-scholarship. The form must be submitted no later than February 15th, 2019 at 11:59 P.M. Central time.
