The National Federation of the Blind of Utah awards as many as five scholarships to Utah residents or those attending Utah schools. Any legally blind, full-time college or graduate student may apply, as well as graduating high school seniors who will be attending college full-time in the upcoming Fall. All finalists must attend the entire convention of the National Federation of the Blind of Utah. The NFBU scholarship program is our investment in the future of blind people who demonstrate scholastic aptitude, leadership and service.
All scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and service to the community. Please submit your supporting documents in Word format. Persons who have previously applied for NFBU scholarships are encouraged to apply again. The Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and selects the scholarship finalists, who will be notified of their selection near the middle of April.
