NFBC Grants to National Convention
I am pleased to announce that you can follow the link below to apply for a grant to the national convention in Orlando, Florida. The national convention will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort from July 3 through 8, 2011. There are two categories of grants available. They are:
1. “Radcliff” Grants ($750.00) are made available to persons who are attending a national convention for the first time. Francis Radcliff established this grant with the hope and knowledge that if someone was given the opportunity to see the National Federation of the Blind in action, they would make every effort to get to subsequent conventions.
2. “NFBC” ($500.00) or affiliate grants are made available to members who have demonstrated leadership in the affiliate. Anyone who is a member in good standing can check this category.
The deadline for applying is May 14, 2011. The Board of Directors will meet and decide on the worthy recipients on the 15th and winners will be notified shortly thereafter.
The following is the link where you can find the application form.
Mary Willows, President
National Federation of the Blind of California
