Federation family and interested parties, 
Of note is the deadline for Scholarship applications for the National
Federation of the  Blind  national Scholarship program. Each year, 30
scholarships are awarded to deserving students who meet the qualifications
including legal blindness. If you know of or are a blind student who will
either enter a college or university program in the Fall of 2016 or who will
return to college or university as an undergraduate or graduate student,
please, please encourage them to apply.   The webpage located at
https://nfb.org/scholarships contains all of the pertinent information that
explains eligibility and requirements for application. An important part of
the application is scheduling an interview with the President of the NFB
Affiliate in which you live. The Affiliate President then writes a letter of
recommendation for you based on the interview with him or her. Any student
applying for the NFB scholarship may contact me via the information below my
signature. There is a call scheduled to discuss the program hosted by the
National Association of Blind Students coming up soon!  The information for
that call is below. I look forward to hearing from current or college bound
studetns in the very near future!

National Federation of theBlind

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day, we raise
expectations of the blind because low expectations create obstacles between
blind people and our dreams. Blindness is not what holds you back. You can
live the life youw ant.!. 

"Whatever you dare to dream, begin." - Goethe
