AFP Diverse Communities Scholarship Application Form Now Available

The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy is pleased to open up the application process for the scholarship fund for members of diverse communities to attend the AFP International Conference on Fundraising. This fund is broken out into three categories:
- African American
- Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (GLBT)
- General Diversity Fund
As other AFP Diverse Communities reaches 100 members, they will be added to the scholarship list as well.
During AFP’s Diversity Scholarship Campaign, which ended on August 31, 2014, AFP raised funds for sixteen (16) diversity scholarships for the 2015 Conference. These sixteen scholarships include ten General Diversity Scholarships (available to fundraising professionals from any currently identified AFP diverse community: African America, Asian, Faith-based, GLBT, Hispanic, Jewish, or Rural), as well as two African American Scholarships and four GLBT Scholarships.
AFP is able to offer $1,500 scholarships ($595 conference fee + $905 for travel expenses) for each of the currently identified AFP diverse communities.
