NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND OF MISSOURI 2018 SCHOLARSHIP Program
Scholarships may range from $500 to $2,500.
The National Federation of the Blind of Missouri is proud to announce their participation in the Nationwide BRAL (Braille Readers are Leaders) Contest. The Braille Readers Are Leaders contest is open to kids in all states, grades K-12. Contestants compete to read the most Braille pages, going against other kids in similar grades across all participating states. The contest runs for six weeks, encouraging kids to be proud of their Braille reading ability and to work to improve their skills — while possibly winning prizes in the process.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
