Our friends at Democracy for America/Netroots Nation want you to know: there are 30 scholarships available for activists to attend Netroots Nation this August in Pittsburgh. (And don't dis Pittsburgh--my artist parents live on the North Side. These days it's as artsy as Austin and until now is an undiscovered gem of a city.)
Details from DFA:
...there's no better place to discuss our priorities and plan how to make them a reality than at Netroots Nation.
To help people get there, we're thrilled to partner with Democracy for America again to offer scholarships to bring activists like you to Pittsburgh to network with fellow leaders from across the country.
This competition is your chance to show off what you've done to move the progressive agenda forward. And it's our chance to ensure that activists of every age, background and economic bracket, representing numerous points of view and all 50 states are able to attend Netroots Nation and make it the richest experience yet.
It's also a great way to help make sure you have the resources to attend. Over the next couple of months, progressives nationwide will have a chance to voice their support for you and help you earn your scholarship.
The award covers the cost of registration and lodging for at least 30 winners— all you have to do is apply.
