2005 National Federation of the Blind Science Academy

The NFB Jernigan Institute is proud to announce the second annual NFB Science Academy.  Established in 2004, the NFB Science Academy has dramatically changed opportunities for blind youth in science by demonstrating that the blind can compete in complex scientific exploration and learning.  The 2005 Academy will keep with the tradition of high expectations and life-changing exploration that was the benchmark of the 2004 Academy.  If you are an interested individual, you should submit the attached interest form to ensure that you receive application materials in a timely fashion.
