Dear Fellow Federationists:


The National Federation of the Blind is partnering with Aira to make its technology available to blind students who are starting their freshmen college year. Aira is a company that uses smart glass technology, live agents, and artificial intelligence to assist blind people in understanding and navigating their environment. These students may find this technology very useful as they navigate their new college campus and the surrounding community, process all the printed information that will be handed out to them, and more. If you know of blind college freshmen in your affiliate, please make sure they get the following information as there are a few spots left for this time sensitive offer:


Through a partnership with Aira's Back to School Program, selected blind college freshmen can receive a free nine-month subscription to four hundred minutes of Aira services, as well as onboard training, data, and the wearable glasses. In order to apply for this opportunity:

You must be legally blind.
You must be beginning college as a first-year student in the fall of 2017.

To be considered for one of these subscriptions, please complete this short application online. There are a limited number of applications that will be accepted, so please fill it out as soon as possible.


Good luck, and all our best for the new school year!
