Applications for Scholarships for Sight Impaired Individuals Due Dec 5th

Posted on October 21, 2020Comments are off

Virginia Lions Eye Institute Foundation (VLEIF) awards scholarships each year to sight impaired individuals.  The scholarships provide financial aid for training or education.  Fairfax Lions Club is happy to sponsor individuals deserving of a scholarship. 

Help pass the word – to teachers, eye care professionals, neighbors, etc… this financial aid is available for sight impaired individuals (that is, not someone whose vision is correctible by glasses, but someone with more limiting circumstances.)

Find the application at: Scholarships. Applicants have a better chance of being successful if they are sponsored by a Lions Club.

If you are interested, contact Fairfax Lions Club by email to, or leave a phone message at 703-879-5795.
