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, 2014, AFP raised funding for fifteen (15) diversity scholarships for the 2015 Conference, as follows: Ten (10) General Diversity Scholarships (available to fundraising professionals from any currently identified AFP diverse community; African America, Asian, Faith-based, GLBT, Hispanic, Jewish, or Rural), Two (2) African American Scholarship and Three (3) GLBT Scholarships.
This means that AFP is able to offer $1,500 scholarships ($595 conference fee + $905 for travel expenses) for each of the currently identified AFP diverse communities. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the diversity scholarship campaign, for your generosity and for helping to ensure a successful launch of this new program.
AFP is now accepting applications for these diversity scholarships. Below is a link to the AFP Diversity Scholarship Application form, which resides in the Diversity section at www.afpnet.org.
AFP would appreciate your distributing this opportunity to the colleagues in your personal and professional networks.
Deadline for application submission is October 31, 2014. Completed applications should be emailed to Lori Gusdorf, AFP Membership Services, at email@example.com. Selected candidates will be notified by email by December 1, 2014.
