AFP Foundation for Philanthropy 2023 Chamberlain Scholarship Program - Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter

AFP NL Chapter is proud to offer the Chamberlain Scholarship Program for the annual International Fundraising Conference. This program is designed to help individuals serving non-profit organizations develop their knowledge and skill in fundraising.

 The AFP Chamberlain Scholarship will cover the registration fee to attend AFP ICON 2024 in Toronto April 7-9, 2024. The successful applicant or their agency/organization will be responsible for all other expenses to attend the conference.  Deadline for applications is 3:00pm October 11, 2023.  The successful applicant will then be notified on or before October 13, 2023 to coincide with the cheapest preview rates set for AFP ICON which is also October 13, 2023.
