Hi Connecticut friends!


I would love to see as many Connecticut students as possible at this year's
Washington Seminar. Luckily, NABS is providing financial support for those
interested in attending! The application is due today, so please do apply!

To be considered, please read the below message. We ask for two references,
so keep that in mind. 

I look forward to seeing some of you in January. Please don't be strangers;
and reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. 


Thanks so much!


Keep in mind that this effort is intended to provide funding to students who
would be otherwise unable to attend Washington Seminar due to financial
hardship. If you, your parents, your local chapter or state affiliate, or
anybody else is providing or could provide financial support to enable you
to make the trip, please take advantage of those other opportunities.
Receiving financial support from another entity does not necessarily make
you ineligible for this funding. Only apply if you truly NEED the help to
attend Washington Seminar. Finally, be aware that if you are granted
financial support, you will be required to attend meetings and functions

in DC from 9am January 25 to 5pm January 27.


We are extremely excited to have an impressive student turnout at the 2016
Washington Seminar. Washington Seminar is an empowering and meaningful
experience where students can not only learn a ton, but also help the
Federation build a brighter future for blind Americans. I urge each of you
to strongly consider taking part in the Washington Seminar, and encourage
anybody who requires financial support to do so to take advantage of this
funding opportunity.


Applications are due November 22. Please simply read the instructions and
requirements and fill out the form 

k/viewform?c=0&w=1> &w=1

If you apply, you will receive a decision on your application no later than
December 15, leaving ample time for transportation and hotel bookings.
