AFP Diverse Communities Scholarship
September 16, 2013
The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy is pleased to open up the application process for the scholarship fund for members of diverse communities to attend the AFP International Conference on Fundraising. This fund is broken out into three categories:
- African American
- Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (GLBT)
- General Diversity Fund
As each AFP Diverse Community reaches 100 members, a separate category will be added.
During AFP’s Diversity Scholarship Campaign, which ended on August 31, 2013, AFP raised funding for ten (10) diversity scholarships for the 2014 Conference, as follows: Five (5) General Diversity Scholarships (available to fundraising professionals from any currently identified AFP diverse community; African America, Asian, Faith-based, GLBT, Hispanic, Jewish, or Rural), Four (4) African American Scholarship and One (1) GLBT Scholarships.
This means that AFP is able to offer $1,500 scholarships ($625 conference fee + $875 for travel expenses) for each of the currently identified AFP diverse communities. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the inaugural diversity scholarship campaign, for your generosity and for helping to ensure a successful launch of this new program.
The deadline for application submission ended October 31, 2013. Selected candidates will be notified by email by December 1, 2013.
