Scholarship Opportunity in Virginia

From the mailbag:

Fellow Federationist, 
I am pleased to announce The National Federation of the Blind of 
Virginia (NFBV) will once again award up to three James F. Nelson, Jr. 
scholarships in the amount of $1,500 at the organization's annual 
state convention to be held at the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina, 
located at 707 Settlers Landing Road, Hampton, Virginia 23669. I have 
attached the application form so that you can easily promote this 
fabulous program to any blind college student who is either a resident 
of Virginia or a college student attending a college or university 
here in the Commonwealth. 
The National Federation of the Blind of Virginia is an organization 
dedicated to creating equality, opportunity, and security for all

scholarships need not be members of the National Federation of the 
Blind of Virginia. The Committee will consider applicants for all 
eligible scholarships with one application. Individuals who have 
applied in previous years are encouraged to apply again. 
The Scholarship Committee, consisting of successful blind college
