Northwest Association for Blind Athletes provides scholarships to children, youth, adults and military veterans to allow applicants to participate in local, regional, national and international competitions. Scholarships are also awarded to assist in the purchase of equipment (tandem cycles, shoes, etc.) to help an athlete achieve his or her dreams. All applications must be received by the 1st of each month to be considered for a scholarship; the board will vote on applications at their next monthly meeting. Applicants may be asked to provide further information before a final decision is made. Applicants are encouraged to review the scholarship policy/criteria thoroughly prior to applying.
