2024 NFB of Wisconsin Scholarship Application
One $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to an appropriately qualified legally blind student attending college as a full-time student in the fall of 2024, as determined by the institution. The student must be a Wisconsin resident. The winner will be sponsored to attend both our spring State Convention in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, April 5-7, and our July 3-8 National Convention in Orlando, Florida. The recipient of this scholarship will receive their monetary award at the beginning of the 2024 fall semester.
Transportation, hotel accommodations, and a stipend for meals for both the week-long national convention and the three-day state convention will be provided by the National Federation of the Blind of Wisconsin. As a requirement of the scholarship award, the winner must attend and participate at each convention in its entirety.
During each convention, our scholarship winner will be able to exchange information and ideas with blind students, successful blind professionals, federal officials, members of Congress, and manufacturers of new technology.
Applicants will be evaluated for their academic excellence, personal achievements, and community service.
