Team See Possibilities is excited to announce the launch of our Global Scholarship Program, designed to help students with vision loss invest in their education.
Since 2014, Team See Possibilities, co-founded by blind endurance athlete Dan Berlin with teammates Charles Scott, Alison Qualter-Berna, and Brad Graff, has taken on epic endurance challenges in iconic locations around the world to support children with vision impairments. Through our travels, we have visited dozens of schools for the blind and met with hundreds of children with vision loss around the world, encouraging students to overcome perceived limitations. “We were inspired by so many of the children we met that we decided to get directly involved with
investing in higher education opportunities for students who are blind or vision impaired,” says Alison Qualter-Berna, co-founder of Team See Possibilities. Thanks to the outstanding donors who supported our most recent endurance challenge in New Zealand, we are able to offer 5 scholarships up to $5,000 each for the 2019/2020 academic year to aspiring students with vision loss in the United States and New Zealand. “Our goal is to alleviate some of the financial burden of obtaining a college education for students who have the drive and determination to take on the challenge,” says Brad Graff, co-founder of Team See Possibilities. Moving forward, we intend to grow our Global Scholarship reach by expanding to the countries TSP has already touched, including Peru, Tanzania, China and Thailand as we continue on our quest of epic endurance challenges on 7 continents in 7 years.
The program is accepting applications beginning March 4th — April 30th, 2019, for scholarships worth up to $5,000 each. If you are a student who is blind or vision impaired and meet the below criteria, we would love to hear from you.
• Considered legally blind
