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.

“Thank you, GDC Board of Directors, for selecting me to represent our chapter at the 2017 AFP International Conference! The conference is so important for raising the profile and advancing the fundraising profession. It provides a rich and diverse learning experience for fundraising professionals who are looking for new, innovative ways to raise funds and, ultimately, make an impact in the world. After attending the conference, I'm reinvigorated and excited to implement new ideas I learned. I'm hoping to attend next year to learn even more!”
