$100 Award to Attend California Council of the Blind Convention in the Fall.

Blind Students of California offers a $100 stipend to attend the fall California Council of the Blind Convention:

Do you want to attend the fall CCB convention in San Diego, but money is a little short? You may be in luck. Blind Students of  California (BSC) is offering one $100 stipend to attend the CCB fall  convention. Qualified applicants should be current students, legally blind, and first time CCB convention attendees. You must also not be  a scholarship winner, or a chapter delegate for the fall. The BSC board asks that you attend both the BSC program and the CCB banquet. We also encourage you to attend all CCB general sessions.

After the convention, we ask that you write a short article for the Blind Californian about your experience at the convention, in consultation with the BSC president. Qualified candidates will participate in a short telephone interview with the BSC officers. The application deadline is September 15. If you are interested, please submit an accessible document (a text file or Word 2003 document),  to leena.salim@gmail.com

You should include your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, school, and major. In addition, please submit a short essay  about why you think BSC should award you the $100 stipend to  attend the convention.

Since 1934, the mission of the California Council of the Blind (CCB) is  to gain full independence and equality of opportunity for all blind and  visually impaired Californians. Find out more at  http://www.ccbnet.org/
