Convention in 2014


Do you need a little extra cash to be able to attend the national convention
in Orlando this summer? The Kenneth Jernigan Scholarship Fund invites
members of the National Federation of the Blind who have not been to a
national convention before to make an application. The three largest
expenses are round-trip travel costs, usually by plane; the room cost from
arrival on July 1 to departure on July 7; and food costs when mostly eating
in a hotel.  The fund will usually cover one of the three. To understand
what the committee needs to know about you, read the article by me, Allen
Harris, chairperson of the Kenneth Jernigan Convention Scholarship Fund,
which is published in the March "Braille Monitor." Here is a direct link to
the article:

hurry if you are interested. The deadline for your letter and a letter from
your affiliate president is April 15.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
