Scholarship Programs

Wisconsin scholarship program

Each year, the National Federation of the Blind of Wisconsin offers a scholarship to an appropriately qualified Wisconsin resident student who is legally blind and attending college full-time.

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.

National scholarship program

The National Federation of the Blind's annual scholarship program is the largest of its kind in the nation. Every year, we award more than $120,000 to blind scholars across the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico in recognition of their achievements and professional aspirations.
