    AFP Memphis invites you to apply for a 2024 Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) Scholarship. Applications are due May 31, 2024.

    We recognize that IDEA principles are central to our mission and expect all organizational interactions to reflect IDEA principles, including a demonstrated appreciation for different voices, active listening, openness to disparate viewpoints and opinions, and facilitating dialogues among diverse groups.

We are committed to promoting an inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible organization where every member, volunteer, staff, and board member can realize their potential and have their contributions valued.

    The recipient will be selected based on the following criteria:

It is an inclusive concept encompassing - without limitation - race, color, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or identity, religion, nationality, age, economic class, educational level, language, physical, mobility and ability, geography, and marital and parental status. AFP’s diverse communities include African-American/Black, Asian, People with Disabilities, Faith-Based, LGBTQ, Hispanic, Jewish, Rural, or other underrepresented communities.
    • The candidate must subscribe to the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards and its bylaws, and promote the Donor Bill of Rights.
    • The candidate is employed or has been employed by an organization that provides benefits to society.
    • The candidate must be a new member to AFP.
