I hope you’re making plans to attend Netroots Nation this June 20–23 in San Jose. You won’t want to miss it—we’re expecting our largest crowd ever and are expanding our program in anticipation of our biggest year yet!
To help you get there, we’re partnering again with Democracy for America and America’s Voice to offer 40 scholarships to deserving bloggers, organizers and activists.
This program has grown a lot over the years but it's still worth noting the idea started right here on Daily Kos in 2007. The Democracy for America Netroots Nation Scholarship Program is designed to send the movement’s best and brightest to the biggest progressive conference of the year.
This is your chance to tout what you’re doing to make your community a more progressive, inclusive place. And it’s our chance to ensure that activists and organizers—regardless of age, background, economic situation or geographic location—are able to participate, too.
And because the scholarship covers the cost of registration and lodging, it’s also a great way to help make sure you have the resources to be there.
Unlike previous years this will happen in one big round. The contest runs through May 7. The five applicants with the most votes at 11:59 PM PST will automatically win a scholarship. Others will be chosen by a selection committee.
