California Council of the Blind Monday, May 15, 2017  

For more than 4 decades, one of our most important services has been the provision of scholarships to legally blind residents of California, even if they are not attending school in the state. The council has assisted persons in an amazing array of fields, from law to physics, photography to web design, psychology to culinary arts. If you are considering applying for a scholarship from the council, you should know that, although we urge you to consider joining our organization of committed Californians with visual impairments, we assist both members and non-members alike. If you would like to learn more about the council, do not hesitate to call us at 800-2216359 or e-mail us atccotb@ccbnet.org.

The California Council of the Blind gives a number of awards to the most deserving blind student applicants who are residents of California and who will enter or continue studies at an accredited college or university in either undergraduate or graduate status. Persons attending vocational schools are also eligible. It is not necessary to be attending a college or university in California. These awards are granted in two parts (1/2 each term) upon receipt of proof of enrollment for each term. Awards will be granted on the basis of academic scholarship and other factors. THIS APPLICATION MUST BE SUBMITTED IN MS WORD FORMAT OR IT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REJECTED. Even if you have previously applied, you must submit an entirely new application, including supporting documentation. Every year we deny applications solely because they are incomplete. If an item is not applicable, please provide a brief explanation. Do not fail to include a Doctor's statement or a statement from a qualified professional, such as a Rehabilitation Counselor.

You must be a permanent California resident to apply.

To qualify to receive a scholarship award, you must be a full-time student registered for at least 12 semester/8 quarter units for each term of the entire academic year or 9 semester/6 quarter units each term for graduate students. If you believe that you have extenuating circumstances, such as additional disability or job requirements, that do not enable you to meet this requirement, please provide a complete explanation of your circumstances.
