Dear Scholarship Applicant,

The National Federation of the Blind of New York State, Inc., proudly announces our 2013 Scholarship Program.  Scholarships will be presented at our State Convention banquet in Albany, New York, on October 5, 2013. 

Applicants must meet the following requirements:

        You are a resident of New York State.

        You are legally blind.

        You are currently accepted in or enrolled in a degree program at the undergraduate, graduate, or postgraduate level.

        You complete the enclosed application and essay of approximately 500 words (or apply on line at www.nfbny.org) which must be received by the Scholarship Committee on or before September 3, 2013.

Scholarship finalists are required to attend and participate in the convention (at the Federationís expense). You will be notified prior to the convention if you are a finalist.

NFB scholarships are awarded on the basis of scholastic excellence, financial need, and community service.  In preparing your essay, you may wish to keep the following things in mind:

A well written, carefully edited essay will count strongly in your favor

The committee members are all successful blind college graduates.  Consider how you can most effectively convey your best qualities.

Since the awards are restricted to blind people, the committee will be interested in the techniques and approaches you use in living as a blind person, as well as your attitude toward and perception of life as a blind person.

Almost all blind students have financial need.  Committee members will assume basic need, so you may choose to refer to this topic only if your need is unusual.
