You're welcome! DSB offers A LOT of stuff. But I don't work there, so I
cannot advise you. Call them, quick!--before the governor carries out her
plan to destroy their ability to help you. 
You're in the right place for the scholarships. The NFB has scholarships.
Does someone else want to chime in and explain the NFB scholarship program?

Thank you very much! Also, I have another question: Does the DSB 
offer any scholarships for high school students who want to go to 
college or continue their education? Do they have any 
programs/services that are offered to people that are graduated 
from high school? Do the DSB help in regards to purchasing a 
noteTaker for people who have limited resources?
