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.
Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will be available on November 1, 2017, and must be submitted by February 15th, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Central time. The application will be available on our website soon.
For more information, please contact Dee Theien in the ACB national office at (612) 332-3242 or (800) 866-3242. We look forward to receiving your application materials.
