The Jacob Bolotin Award Program
The National Federation of the Blind determines the total amount available for the Dr. Jacob Bolotin Awards program each year based on the trust income received. The number of awards and the amount of each award will be determined by the Federation’s Dr. Jacob Bolotin Award Committee based on its evaluation of eligible and deserving applicants. Each year, to the extent feasible as determined by the Committee’s evaluation of applications received, one or more awards will be made to applicants in each category—blind individuals, sighted individuals, and corporate or organizational entities. However, the Committee is not bound to make an award in each category during each competition year and may not do so if an application meeting the selection criteria is not available.
