Do you need a little extra cash to be able to attend the national 
convention in Orlando this summer? The Kenneth Jernigan Scholarship 
Fund invites members of the National Federation of the Blind who have 
not been to a national convention before to make an application. The 
three largest expenses are round-trip travel costs, usually by plane; 
the room cost from arrival on July 1 to departure on July 7; and food 
costs when mostly eating in a hotel.  The fund will usually cover one 
of the three. To understand what the committee needs to know about 
you, read the article by me, Allen Harris, chairperson of the Kenneth 
Jernigan Convention Scholarship Fund, which is published in the March 
"Braille Monitor." Here is a direct link to the article: 
Please hurry if you are interested. The deadline for your letter and 
a letter from your affiliate president is April 15.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
