Each year in August, the Mid-Tennessee Council awards a $250.00 scholarship to recognize achievement by blind scholars. All applicants for these scholarships
must be legally blind in both eyes, and
must reside in the State of Tennessee, and
must be pursuing or planning to pursue a full-time, postsecondary course of study in a degree program at a United States' institution in the 2012 scholastic year, except that one scholarship may be given to a person employed full-time while attending school part-time, and
must participate in the entire TCB state convention, and attend the monthly local council nearest them, and in all scheduled scholarship program activities.
In addition to a scholarship, the winner is encouraged to attend the 2012 American Council of the Blind Annual Convention in July. The convention provides an excellent opportunity for high level networking with active blind persons in many, many different professions and occupations.
