The National Association of Blind Students now has a YouTube channel titled “how blind students see it”. On this YouTube channel, it will be a platform for different blind students to show us what is going on in their lives and their different successes. This channel will also have different videos educating people on different situations that blind people face and how blind students accomplish their goals. Here is a link to our YouTube channel and our first video introducing the board. We hope to have you subscribe and like our videos. We look forward to connecting with all of you in the future!
The National Federation of the Blind believes in investing in the future by supporting the college education of deserving legally blind students. The NFB’s annual scholarship program is the largest of its kind in the nation. Every year, the NFB awards more than $240,000 to blind scholars across the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico in recognition of their achievements and professional aspirations. Share this opportunity that invests in the future of blind people. Learn about the eligibility and requirements of the 2021 scholarship program at www.nfb.org/programs-services/scholarships-and-awards/scholarship-program. All blind high school seniors and college students are encouraged to apply! The application deadline is March 31.
