Scholarship Application Letter

California State University, Northridge,
Center on Disabilities’ 21st Annual International
Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference
March 20-25, 2006 ~ Los Angeles, CA


Scholarships Are For First Time Attendees Only!
Artistic line for decoration only.

INTRODUCTION: Over the past sixteen years, the Center on Disabilities at California State University, Northridge has contributed hundreds of scholarships to people with disabilities and/or their guardians. The demand is so great that scholarships must be limited to those who have never had the opportunity to participate in the conference before.

REGISTRATION FEE WAIVER: A scholarship is a registration fee waiver only. Recipients may attend all general sessions, exhibit halls and other activities open to participants during the conference. Individuals receiving scholarships are responsible for their own expenses (rooms, meals, transportation, personal care attendants, etc.).

CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES: A person with disabilities (or their guardian) is the target audience. It is clear that the scholarship should “make the difference” for the person to attend. Please make no assumptions about receiving a scholarship until you receive an “acceptance” or “regrets” letter from the Center on Disabilities.

PROCEDURES FOR APPLYING: Please complete the scholarship application and return it as soon as possible to:
