Scholarships

The National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota announces its 2020 scholarship program. This year we will be awarding 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 the annual national convention of the National Federation of the Blind during July 14-19 In Houston, Texas, with expenses paid. At the convention, scholarship winners will have the chance to meet other blind students from throughout the country and gain valuable insights into succeeding as blind people. Additionally, both winners are required, at our expense, to attend the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota convention in THE Fall, November 6-8, 2020, in Bloomington, Minnesota. The scholarships will be presented at the banquet of this convention. Candidates must be students who are legally blind and attending a post-secondary school full-time in Minnesota.

In order to apply for a scholarship, complete the online scholarship application and email the additional required documents to scholarships@nfbmn.org. A Microsoft Word version of the application can also be requested through the same email address.
