The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) and American Council of the Blind (ACB) have partnered together to offer the Paul and Ellen Ruckes scholarship. All interested candidates must register for an ACB account prior to submitting a scholarship application online. Once you have created an account with ACB, please login and then you can access the scholarship application from the link at the top of the site. To maximize the financial impact, scholarship awardees may receive a combined AFB and ACB award. 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 to be eligible for most scholarships, 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. For those attending a technical college or attending university as an entering freshman, undergraduate or graduate student.
