SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM GUIDELINES

PURPOSE

The purpose of AFPLI’s Scholarship Program is to support the career development of individuals entering the field of fundraising, maintain ongoing credentials and to enhance ones’ ability to provide effective fundraising leadership to their organizations.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • AFPLI members are eligible to receive a full or partial scholarship for many programs. This is considered a benefit of membership.
  • Individuals who are not members of AFPLI are eligible to apply for partial scholarships for membership and Philanthropy Day after meeting certain criteria.
  • An individual may receive only one scholarship per calendar year.
  • Other candidates for membership scholarship will be reviewed individually.

TYPES OF SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

Scholarships are available for a variety of educational programs sponsored by AFPLI, including attendance at Philanthropy Days and one scholarship only may be awarded annually to the AFP International Conference.  To apply for a 2018 Chamberlain Program Scholarship for the 2018 AFP International Fundraising Conference to be held April 15-17, 2018 in New Orleans, LA, click here.  Deadline for submission of applications is October 26th.

See AFP Membership invitation on www.afpnet.org for complete details of membership categories.  The recipient is expected to pay at least the chapter portion of the dues.

HOW SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS ARE DETERMINED

The Scholarship Committee views favorably on an applicant’s own personal financial commitment toward the educational program for which s/he is applying for a scholarship. Both full and partial scholarships may be awarded. The Committee also looks favorably upon applicants who volunteer on AFPLI committees and the recipient is required to volunteer if a scholarship is awarded.  Scholarships are limited to registration fees and may not be used for travel, hotel or meal expenses.

The Scholarship Committee of AFPLI makes all decisions regarding awards. Their decision is based on a review of the required application materials, which include an application form, personal statement (which clearly expresses why the applicant or his/her organization cannot pay the fee) and letter(s) of reference. In some cases, a telephone interview may be requested.
