The Missouri Council of the Blind is pleased to again offer scholarships to blind students who will be entering college during the school year of September 2016-17.

They must be enrolling in a full course of study and pursuing a degree.

Scholarships are also available for those blind students who are presently enrolled in college and are working toward a degree.

In order for an applicant to be considered, the application must be fully completed, be accompanied by all required supporting documents and typewritten or computer generated. If the applicant fails to meet these requirements, the application will be denied.

The deadline for submitting an application is May 1, 2016. The Scholarship Committee will review and make decisions on the applications during the month of May. Those applicants approved for a scholarship will be sent a letter notifying them that they have been approved for a scholarship and the amount of the scholarship.
