by Cayte Mendez

Cayte MendezFrom the Editor: Many volunteer jobs in the NFB are as taxing and as demanding of time as fulltime employment. One of them is chairing our Scholarship Committee, and Cayte does a wonderful job of remaining calm, cool, and compassionate in the performance of her duties. Here is her announcement about the 2024 Scholarship Program with the promise of a longer article to come early next year:

The National Federation of the Blind is pleased to announce our 2024 scholarship program. We offer thirty $8,000 scholarships to blind students who will be at least eighteen years of age by July 1, 2024. Students may apply if they reside in the fifty states, the District of Colombia, or Puerto Rico and will be enrolled in a full-time accredited post-secondary degree program during the 2023-2024 school year. All scholarships will be awarded at our 2024 National Convention, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, from July 3 to 8, 2024.

The application period begins December 1, 2023, and closes at midnight EST on March 31, 2024. Go to To apply during the four-month open period: read the rules and the submission checklist, complete the official 2024 scholarship application form (online or in print), supply all required documents, and request and complete an interview with an NFB affiliate president. Remember, the only way to win is to apply!
