Grants for Education for Visually Impaired Students

Major progresses have been made in the last few decades that currently allow people with all kinds of disabilities to have a fair shot at getting a higher education. Particularly for the visually impaired the application process can be highly stressful, but with the advent of online degrees, blind students stand to benefit. Online college degree programs are thought via a series of audio lectures, so blind students can easily take advantage of them, as well. Not to mention most books have now been converted into audio-books allowing easy access to information for those with a disability too.

What’s more, if you’re a visually impaired student pursuing an offline or online bachelor degree, you should know there are dedicated grants for education for to the blind. In what follows were going to share some of these scholarships with you.

American Council for the Blind Scholarship Program

The ACB has a few grants for education to offer. It can give up to 20 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 to students who are able to maintain a 3.3 GPA and demonstrate an involvement in their student community.

The scholarship is opened to undergraduate or graduate students enrolled with one of the many offline or online degrees available. On top of being enrolled with a traditional or online bachelor degree, applicants need to send in an autobiographical essay, a certification of legal blindness and a transcript of their academic history, on top of two letters of recommendation.

Students enrolled with offline or online college degree programs are required to send in their application by February 15, 2017. Good luck!

Barbara Jackman Zuckert Scholarship for Blind Students

This bursary is awarded to students of the George Washington University. The school also offers online degrees like the Master of Science in Project Management. The grant is designed to help visually impaired students who are currently enrolled at least part time in one of the undergrad degree programs.

The recipient of the grant will be awarded based on financial need, specific disability-related expenses and potential for career advancement in the chosen field.

Christian Record Services for the Blind Scholarships

If you are a visually impaired child or teen planning to enroll with offline or online college degree in a few years, you could be eligible to apply for this scholarship.

The Christian Records Services for the Blind award several partial grants for education on a yearly basis to students pursuing an accredited offline or online bachelor degree programs offered by universities out there.

Applicants need to be legally blind at 20/200 with correction and be planning to enroll with one of the many offline or online degrees proposed by the available colleges.

As you can see, even if you have a disability it’s easy to find grants for education offered by institutions which want to help you get a higher education. For visually impaired students it’s often more difficult to enroll in college, but online education makes things a lot easier by allowing students to stay at home and learn in a safe environment.
