concerning this aspiring scholarship applicants should be aware this is an

American Council of the Blind"
It does sound like you don't have to attend their convention though so you

Also if your a total you can't apply for the scholarship.
You have to have some vision and use low vision aids.
here's a direct quote from the application information.
"Semi-finalists will be selected to participate in a telephone interview
members. Winners will be notified in late spring. Winners are encouraged to
our annual meeting, which is held in conjunction with the American Council
Blind National Convention and generally takes place the first week in July.
Please note: The required CCLVI
