NFB Charles and Melva T. Owen Memorial Scholarships

This award was first established by Charles Owen in loving memory of his blind wife and now, along with a second scholarship in a different amount, endowed by his last will and testament to honor the memory of both. 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.
