One $1500 Scholarship will be awarded to an appropriately qualified legally blind student attending college in the Fall of 2023 as a full-time student. The student must be a Wisconsin resident. The winner will be sponsored to attend both our spring State Convention in Green Bay, Wisconsin, May 12-14, and our July 1-6 National Convention in Houston, Texas. You will receive your monetary award at the beginning of your Fall semester, 2023.
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.
