In founding the scholarship, Charles Owen wrote: "There shall be no limitation as to field of study, except that it shall be directed towards attaining financial independence and shall exclude religion and those seeking only to further general or cultural education."

    In addition to a scholarship, each winner will receive assistance to attend the next National Federation of the Blind Annual Convention, providing an excellent opportunity for high level networking with active blind persons in many, many different professions and occupations.
