If you thought you couldn’t afford to attend Netroots Nation (formerly known as Yearly Kos), Democracy for America has announced a discount for the registration as well as a scholarship to the conference, which will be held in Austin, Texas from July 17 to 20. Charles Chamberlain, political director of Democracy for America explains the two options below the fold.

The other way is to earn a Netroots Nation Scholarship.
I’m excited to announce that DFA and Netroots Nation are teaming up for a Scholarship Competition to choose at least nine activists to join us. We’ll cover the cost of admission and lodging — all you have to do is apply and win.
The competition is a fun way to show off who you are and what you’ve done to move America forward. It’s also a great way to help make sure you have the resources to attend. And over the next two weeks, progressives nationwide will have a chance to voice their support for you and help you earn your scholarship.
This is one event that you don’t want to miss. The third annual gathering of the netroots community will include panels and caucuses led by national and international experts; prominent political, issue and policy-oriented speakers; a progressive film screening series and the most concentrated gathering of high-profile progressive bloggers to date.
I will be there — it’s a great networking opportunity for those of us who aren’t based in the media and political nerve centers.
