Professional Development Scholarships

AFP-RI Scholarships

Through the support of the Herbert E. Kaplan Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation, AFP-RI is able to provide full and partial professional development scholarships for Chapter trainings and education workshops.

Prospective scholarship recipients can include executive directors, development staff and leadership volunteers of grassroots and culturally diverse organizations. AFP membership is not necessarily required to qualify for a scholarship. These scholarships seek to subsidize, in part or in full, the cost of attending AFP-RI sessions.

AFP International Conference Scholarship

Chamberlain Scholarship

To help individuals serving nonprofit organizations develop knowledge and skills in fundraising, the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy sponsors the Chamberlain Scholarship Program. This scholarship covers the conference registration with the exception of a $10 processing fee for the AFP International Conference on Fundraising. AFP-RI will provide reimbursement for travel, lodging and meals (up to $1,000). Recipients are responsible for registering for the conference and making all travel and lodging arrangements and upon return, submitting all receipts to the Rhode Island Chapter.

Applications for the Chamberlain Scholarship are available in the fall to attend the annual AFP International Conference on Fundraising in the spring.
