Chamberlain Scholarship Program

Each year, AFP International offers the Chamberlain Scholarship Program to assist outstanding AFP members who have never before attended an AFP International Conference. Each chapter is invited to select one Chamberlain Scholar.

Our chapter’s 2018 Chamberlain Scholar winner attended the AFP International Conference in New Orleans, LA, April 15 – 17, 2018.

To qualify, you must be an AFP Greater Detroit member in good standing for at least three years, employed as a fundraising professional, never attended an AFP International Conference, and agree to complete an online evaluation about your experience at the conference.

The Chamberlain Scholar receives $500 to cover AFP International Conference registration (scholars must pay $10 to register).

The 2018 submission deadline has passed.  Please check back in September for the new application.

“It has been an honor and a pleasure to represent the AFP GDC at the International Fundraising Conference in New Orleans, LA. Continuing to learn about advances in the fundraising profession while building a professional network are only two benefits of attending. This year, the conference had a focus on diversity and it was inspirational to hear the closing keynote speaker, Bryan Stevenson, Founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative deliver his address. I can’t wait to do it all over again next year! Thank you, AFP GDC Board of Directors, for selecting me to participate.”
