The 2017 Dr. Jacob Bolotin Award Program


The National Federation of the Blind is pleased to announce that applications are being accepted through April 15, 2017, for the Dr. Jacob Bolotin Awards Program. The awards will be presented at the annual convention of the National Federation of the Blind in Orlando, Florida, during the second week of July. These awards recognize individuals and organizations working in the field of blindness that have demonstrated exemplary leadership and extraordinary accomplishments toward achieving the full integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality. Named for a pioneering blind physician who practiced in the early twentieth century, the Dr. Jacob Bolotin awards are made possible through the generosity of his late nephew and niece. Their bequest, the Alfred and Rosalind Perlman Trust, allows the National Federation of the Blind to provide direct financial support to people and organizations that are improving the lives of the blind throughout the United States. Please visit the Application Information and Materials page to submit a nomination or submit a letter of recommendation.
