Share This:

NOTE: You will apply at the DFA website.

Watch out, Vegas! 

This year, America’s Voice is teaming up with Democracy for America (DFA), Netroots Nation 2010, and National Council of La Raza (NCLR) to send 20 grassroots immigration bloggers and advocates to Netroots Nation 2010, awarding them the opportunity to participate in four days of insightful panels, training sessions and networking opportunities, and the opportunity to share their unique perspectives on immigration with the larger progressive community.

Because we like to mix it up, the process this year is a little different from last year — scholars will be chosen during the final round of DFA’s scholarship process, by judges from each of our organizations.  Though rounds 1 and 2 of DFA’s process are already over, there are still several days to apply for Round Three, which will be judged through June 13. Scholarship winners will be announced in mid-June — so stay tuned to see who the lucky winners are.

Whether you’re a community organizer or a blogger who writes on immigration, please APPLY NOW and help us spread the word!

Fine print: Scholarships will include 1 all-access pass to the conference, flight, hotel accommodations, and a couple of meals and events sponsored by DFA. Please check the box indicating that you’re interested in our scholarship. Encourage your friends and family members to vote for you on the DFA website!
