We believe that nothing should stop people who are blind or visually impaired from following their dreams of pursuing higher education—especially the cost. To help, the Cincinnati Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (CABVI) and the Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired (Clovernook Center) have teamed up to create the Visionary Scholars Program. This program will offer educational scholarships for students with vision loss who are planning to attend an accredited university/college. This program also awards students with scholarships to assist with postsecondary education or job/career training financial needs such as tuition, fees, room and board and other additional costs.
We will be offering up to 10 scholarships — five $5,000 scholarships and five $1,000 scholarships to those who meet the following criteria:
- High school junior or senior
- An individual diagnosed as legally blind or severely visually impaired; or a team of individuals at least one of whom is legally blind or severely visually impaired
- Resides in one of the following counties in Ohio: Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland, Warren OR one of the following counties in Kentucky: Boone, Campbell, Kenton
