The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
2021 Annual State Convention
Nov. 5-7, 2021 (Bloomington)
The National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota announces its 2021 scholarship program. This year we will award one scholarship for $2,000 and one scholarship for $1,500 to qualified applicants. In addition to the monetary award, winners will have the opportunity to attend our national and state conventions. Candidates must be students who are legally blind and attending a post-secondary school full-time in Minnesota.
One of the highlights of the 2020 annual convention of the NFB of Minnesota was the presentation of an audio documentary with voices and sounds from our history, gathered by Steve Jacobson and Tim Aune. This amazing trip through time was presented in several segments during the convention. It is available in four mp3 files, downloadable from the links below, and also along with other commemorative material at www.nfbmn.org/100years.
We priase the Secretary of State’s introduction of a system by which blind Minnesotans can accessibly, safely, and privately mark their absentee ballots in time for the November 2020 election.
