Dear Yasmin Reyazuddin,


I am contacting you in the hopes that you can help identify college-age
students who are legally blind.  The National Research and Training Center
on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) at Mississippi State University continues
to seek students and professionals to participate in a nationwide Employment
Mentoring Project that pairs students with legally blind mentors and offers
career resources in an effort to improve employment outcomes.  We are
looking specifically for students graduating college or grad school between
August 2013 and December 2014. Students graduating before March 2014 should
sign up right away to be included in the next group!  


Students must be legally blind, under age 35, living anywhere in the U.S.,
and seeking employment after graduation. Although finding students to
participate is our greatest need, we are also seeking legally blind mentors.
Do you know of anyone who might meet these qualifications and would benefit
from participating?  If you do, please share this information!  For more
details, please visit: http://tiny.cc/mentoring-project or contact Dr. Jamie
O'Mally at nrtc2 at colled.msstate.edu or 1-800-675-7782. Also, please consider
sharing or signing up for our national Participant Registry for Blindness
and Low Vision Research (http://tiny.cc/participant-registry). 


We really appreciate your help!
