Scholarships Available for TechSoup NetSquared Conference
echSoup (www.techsoup.org), the nonprofit technology Web site, has announced that the Philanthropy and Volunteerism Program of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (www.wkkf.org) will provide a limited number of scholarships to attendees of the TechSoup NetSquared Conference (www.netsquared.org), May 30-31, 2006, in San Jose, California. The two-day TechSoup NetSquared conference builds upon six months of intense online discussion on the NetSquared Web site about how nonprofits and non-governmental agencies can best use new-generation Internet tools such as blogging, podcasting, and tagging to better reach and mobilize their constituencies. The conference provides opportunities for the NetSquared community to meet face-to-face, share knowledge, and learn about new tools and their use in a nonprofit setting. In addition, participants will chart the future direction of the NetSquared community and its effort to help nonprofits around the globe adopt these tools. Scholarships will be provided to people at NGOs and nonprofit organizations who are already using blogs, podcasts, or other new-generation Internet technologies, and to nonprofit staffers who would like to learn how using these tools can help extend their organization's reach and impact. Scholarships will cover travel, lodging, and conference registration for individuals representing a nonprofit organization. For detailed information on the scholarships and/or to access the online application form, visit the TechSoup NetSquared Conference Web site. The deadline for scholarship applications is April 12, 2006.
