How to Apply

We are currently closing the gap, by assisting legally blind students to fulfill their goals and awarding scholarships to students that desire a higher education and that is not limited to traditional undergraduate studies. We support students pursing trade school as well as graduate studies. If students have a goal, we would love to help them achieve it!
