The National Federation of the Blind is an organization dedicated to creating opportunities for all blind persons. In the furtherance of this goal, we have established our scholarship award program. Recipients of Federation scholarships need not be members of the National Federation of the Blind. Federation scholarships and awards are judged on the basis of academic excellence, service to the community and financial need.
