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: https://nfb.org/images/nfb/publications/bm/bm14/bm1403/bm140316.htm. Please 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.
