Lighthouse Guild Graduate Student Scholarship

Application Deadline: March 31, 2020

Lighthouse Guild supports higher education for all individuals and acknowledges the achievements of academically qualified high school and college students who are seeking to further their education. The foundation offers scholarships for students with vision loss that help them make a successful transition to college and graduate education.

Each year, the organization’s merit-based scholarship program helps up to 17 outstanding legally blind high school students from across the country. The Lighthouse Guild also provides a scholarship each year to a qualifying graduate student. The award is unrestricted, so you can use it for whatever you wish: tuition, room and board, books, and travel. If you have a record of strong academic accomplishment and merit, apply for a scholarship and take another step toward the advanced education you deserve.


  • Be already attending or planning to attend a graduate program to earn a Master’s degree, PhD, MD, JD, or other post-baccalaureate degree.
  • Provide proof of legal blindness. Verification should be in the form of a statement from a state rehabilitation agency, an ophthalmologist, or an optometrist.
  • Provide proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residency. A passport, birth certificate, naturalization papers, or proof of legal residency.
