The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy annually awards one Chamberlain Scholarship to each AFP chapter for an individual to attend the prestigious AFP International Conference. The scholarship is named for Ralph Chamberlain, who was instrumental in starting the Association of Fundraising Professionals organization.
The Chamberlain Scholarship is designed to help individuals serving nonprofit organizations develop their knowledge and skill in fundraising. The scholarship supports attendance at the AFP International Conference; a place to gain insight from industry and world leaders, and a chance to learn breakthrough fundraising tactics.
The 2013 Conference will be held in San Diego California on April 7- 9, 2013. The Chamberlain Scholarship provided by the AFP Foundation covers the conference registration fee ($595) for the recipient (minus a nominal $10 scholarship registration fee).
