The Reverend Frank Lee Memorial Scholarships

The NFB of Alabama and the Alabama Association of Blind Students are pleased to present four 2022 Frank Lee Memorial Scholarships. The aim of these scholarships is to help blind college students in Alabama unleash their full potential and become leaders in their communities. 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 these scholarships. The deadline to submit an application is January 14, 2022, and the winners will be notified no later than February 14, 2022.

All scholarship recipients will attend the 2022 National Federation of the Blind of Alabama’s Annual Convention at the Hilton UAB Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama. All scholarship recipients' expenses will be paid in full to attend.  The convention will be held March 4 - 6, 2022. While participating in the convention, the winners will meet other successful blind college students and professionals. The Alabama Association of Blind Students (AABS) will host various activities which will give the scholarship recipients the chance to learn about AABS and become involved in the organization.
