First Time AFP International Conference Attendee

This scholarship is provided by AFP International to each of the AFP Chapters in order to send a fundraising professional to their first AFP International Conference. Each chapter accepts applications and is responsible for choosing a suitable applicant to receive the scholarship. This scholarship covers the registration fee. 

AFP SEO will select their Chamberlain Scholar based on the following criteria:

  • Candidate is employed as a fundraising professional or, if candidate is an executive director, a substantial amount of time must be devoted to fundraising.
  • Candidate has never attended an AFP or NSFRE International Conference on Fundraising as a registered participant (unless as a member of the Conference Host Committee) and is enthusiastic to attend the full conference as scheduled.
  • Candidate must agree to complete an online evaluation form about his or her experience at International Conference.
  • Only one individual from any local organization or institution may be selected.
  • Candidate must be willing to share their AFP ICON experience with their chapter after the conference has concluded. This can be accomplished through a report to chapter leadership, a contribution to the chapter newsletter, or an alternate contribution identified by chapter leadership.
  • In addition to these criteria, diversity and financial need will also be considered by the selection committee.
