Cost and Financial Aid

American Council of the Blind

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) and American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) have now partnered together to offer educational scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $7,500 for those attending a technical college or as an entering freshman, undergraduate or a graduate student.

This program awards students with scholarships to help with post-secondary education financial needs such as tuition, fees, room and board and other additional costs associated with adaptive technology.

To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants need to be legally blind, maintain a 3.0 GPA, be a full-time student (as well as students who work 32 or more hours per week and attend college part time), and be involved in their school/local community.
