The 2020 ACB scholarship application is now open!
The American Council of the Blind has a great opportunity for students who are legally blind to earn a scholarship, whether you are going to a technical college, an entering freshman, undergraduate or a graduate student. Over $55,000 in scholarships are awarded to students each year. To be eligible, you need to be legally blind, maintain a 3.0 GPA, and be involved in your school/local community.
As a scholarship winner, you will experience firsthand ACB’s national conference and convention in July, where you will meet other students who share the same life experiences, create lasting friendships, and network with individuals who understand what you are going through and can help you with your journey.
Applications for the 2020-2021 school year can be submitted online from Friday, November 1, 2019 to Friday, February 14, 2020 11:59pm (CST).
All interested candidates must register for a new ACB account prior to submitting a scholarship application online. Visit https://members.acb.org/ to register.
Candidates should receive an email containing a link to complete the scholarship application after their account request has been approved. Please note - the approval process could take up to three business days.
