The NIB Fellowship for Leadership Development

As I have so many friends and readers - some with albinism or HPS and some without - I get a lot of info about blindness/low vision stuff. This is another of those items I really don't know a lot about, but I'm passing it along. If you're interested, you can check it out.

The Fellowship for Leadership Development sponsored by National Industries for the Blind (NIB), is a salaried, two-year program that combines business-focused, on-the-job experience with formal management training. Legally blind people who have an undergraduate degree, work experience, and passion for business are invited to apply. Fellows are selected on academic achievement, experience, motivation, references, and personal interviews. Fellows who have completed the program have moved to management jobs gaining financial independence and, as business leaders, have added value at all levels of the workplace and society. To learn more about the NIB fellowship and apply, go to and click on the link for the Business Leaders program. There you will find a link for the Fellowship for Leadership Development, where you can locate frequently asked questions and the application form. For further information email Sandy Finley with the NIB Business Leaders program at or call her at (703) 310-0506.
