The National Federation of the Blind awards a broad array of scholarships to blind students each year, both through the national organization and through the affiliate organizations in each state. The NFB's national scholarships are the most generous available to blind students anywhere, with the lowest amount being $3000 and the highest $10,000! The amounts of state scholarships vary by state. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, community service, and financial need.
