Chamberlain Scholarship Program

Each year, AFP International offers the Chamberlain Scholarship Program to assist outstanding AFP members who have never before attended an AFP International Conference. Each chapter is invited to select one Chamberlain Scholar.

The AFP Greater Detroit Chapter's Chamberlain Scholar recipient will attend the AFP International Conference in New Orleans in April.

To qualify, you must be an AFP Greater Detroit member in good standing for at least three years, employed as a fundraising professional, never attended an AFP International Conference, and agree to complete an online evaluation about your experience at the conference.

Chamberlain Scholarship recipients receive a two part scholarship: 1) AFP Global covers the cost of registration for AFP ICON minus a $10 processing fee and 2) $1,000 from the AFP Greater Detroit Chapter to cover travel, hotel, and transportation costs.

Please note that the application process has been closed for the 2023 Chamberlain Scholarship.  Be sure to check back later in 2023 to apply for the 2024 Chamberlain Scholarship.
