I would advertise these as Missouri Stipends for 2018 National Convention.
Also, please remember that members can apply for a Kenneth Jernigan
Scholarship but there is only about a week left to apply for this national
funding. It is possible to receive assistance from both sources. Information
about the Kenneth Jernigan Scholarship is available in the Braille Monitor.
At any rate, our national Convention is an awesome opportunity so if you
have never been to a NFB national convention, make plans to join us in
Orlando. There is an awesome agenda of activities for parents and families
of blind children.

We are now accepting applications for National Convention stipends
through 5:00 pm CDT on May 15. These funds are intended to help those
attend the convention who would find it difficult to attend unless they
receive some help, in no case will   we be able to fully fund anyone.
Funding levels for an individual depend on the number of applicants and
their needs.

IMPORTANT: Email your request to MizzouFan1979 at GMail.com
<mailto:MizzouFan1979 at GMail.com>   as I may or may not continue at my
regular Email address.

Funds are available  to anyone with a financial need however
overwhelming priority is given first to those who have never been to a
National Convention and secondly to those who have never received a
National Convention stipend before. 

Your request needs to include the following:

Explain why you need the stipend and how it will help you.

What is the minimum amount that you need (the Ramen Noodles diet

What is the ideal amount you NEED?

What chapter are you a member of?:

Have you received a National Convention stipend before?:

How many National Conventions have you attended and when was the most

You need to state that you understand that any unused funds will be
returned to the State Treasurer and you MUST provide receipts showing
bills you incurred. And further, if you cannot make it you will notify
the committee or state Treasurer immediately so excessive funds are not
withdrawn or unnecessary checks written.



Also, the National organization has an additional opportunity for
funding through the Jernigan Fund contact President Shelia Wright for
more details at 816-679-5258.

All applications are strictly confidential.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Eugene Coulter, Rittgers Committee Chair
