AFP Mid America Chapter Scholarship Programs

2017 Chamberlain Scholarship 

The 54th Annual International Conference on Fundraising will take place in San Francisco, CA, on April 30 - May 2, 2017. This is a wonderful opportunity for all members of the fundraising profession to sharpen their abilities and learn from their peers. This conference offers the broad spectrum, inspirational experience and the nuts-and-bolts, hands-on tactics to successfully achieve your vision for your organization.  A conference of this caliber can be a truly transformative experience for any fundraising professional.  

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) offers one Chamberlain Scholarship covering the cost of conference registration (approximately a $595 value) PLUS another $500 to help cover travel and lodging costs as a one-time award to a deserving individual who has not attended a previous AFP International Conference.  Note that Chamberlain Scholars are responsible for a $10 payment to secure the registration.  

Congratulations to our 2017 Chamberlain Scholar Allison McLain!




Mid-America Conference on Fundraising Scholarships

The Mid-America Conference on Fundraising takes place each spring in locations around the Midwest. Each year, the AFP Mid-America Chapter offers two scholarships that will cover the cost of conference registration. This scholarship is open to AFP Mid-America Chapter members only. The 2017 Mid-America Conference on Fundraising will take place in Kansas City, MO on April 2 - 5, 2017. This year, because Kansas City is the host community, the Mid-America Chapter will offer up to 4 scholarships to cover the cost of both the pre-conference and conference registration.

2017 Mid-America Conference on Fundraising scholarship applications were due on January 23.
