Below is an excerpt from a letter I received that needs to be shared with 
any and all interested parties. Please pass it along.
Thanks so very much.


I am writing to you today specifically to ask for your
help.  Would you please inform eligible students that Lighthouse
International is still accepting applications for our
2009 Scholarship and Career Awards.

There are three categories and each carries a $5,000 prize:

  - College-Bound,

  - Undergraduate, and

  - Graduate

A total of five Scholarships will be awarded across
those three categories. The criteria for eligibility
are that applicants:

 - Must be legally blind (i.e., have a best corrected
   visual acuity of 20/200 or less in the better eye,
   and/or a visual field of less than 20 degrees in the
   better eye).

 - Must be US citizens, and reside and attend an
   accredited school in any of the following states:
   CT, DE, FL, GA, MA, MD, ME, NC, NH, NJ, NY,
   PA, RI, SC, VA, WV and VT, or Washington, DC.

Proof of citizenship will be required of all winners.

Scholarships are based on academic and personal
achievements and candidates are not required to
demonstrate financial need.

Previous winners (in any category) of Lighthouse
Scholarships, current Lighthouse employees and members
of their immediate families are ineligible.

You can learn more about these scholarships, which reward
excellence, recognize accomplishments and help
students who are blind or partially sighted
achieve their career goals at


If you have any questions regarding the Scholarship
and Career Awards program, please e-mail us at

Please ask your students to specify that they learned
about this opportunity from eSight Careers Network.

Thank you in advance for your help.
