We are looking for dedicated students who are determined to succeed and facilitate the success of other blind students. We urge all blind college students in the state of Alabama to apply for this scholarship. The scholarship will be in the amount of $1,000. The deadline to submit an application is January 15th, and the winner will be notified no later than February 15th.
