Blind Students of California Offers a $100 stipend to attend the fall CCB 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 at 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.
