Unfortunately, we know that not everyone fighting the good fight can make it to Netroots Nation. Sometimes work, family or that epic backpacking trip get in the way, and we can’t do anything about that. However, we never want people to be unable to go because of cost.
That’s why I am once again thrilled to announce Democracy for America is offering our Netroots Nation Scholarship. We’ll pay for your registration and hotel -- but you have to earn it. We give our scholarships to the rising stars of the progressive community, and in the spirit of the progressive digital community, you get to choose who we send.
Here’s what you do:
1. Apply! If you have always wanted to go to Netroots, but don’t have the spare
cash, this could be your opportunity!
2. Nominatesomebody who you think deserves to go, they’ll be flattered.
3. Most of all, vote for the activists you think most deserving.
Past scholars include folks who have successfully run for state office, prominent gun violence prevention activists, radio personalities, and well-known bloggers. This could be your chance to attend Netroots Nation and make the connections you need to take your activism to the next level. Apply now.
