2020 Scholarship Information

About the Chamberlain Scholarship

If you have never attended an AFP International Fundraising Conference because it was cost-prohibitive, consider applying for the 2020 Chamberlain Scholarship. This scholarship defrays the cost for first-time conference attendees, no matter the longevity of your AFP membership. To qualify, you must be a current AFP member and employed at a nonprofit as a fundraising professional or an executive director.

The scholarship covers the conference registration fee, minus a $10 processing fee, to attend the AFP ICON 2020 held in Baltimore, MD from March 29 - 31, 2020. An additional $1,000 stipend is also provided to assist in travel and lodging costs. This scholarship is given by the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy and the AFP Southern Colorado Chapter.

Application Deadline

Applications are due Monday, October 21st, 2019. Questions? Please contact Kelly Shelton at

A Note from 2019 Chamberlain Scholarship Recipient, Lillian Bui

"Attending AFP ICON as Southern Colorado’s Chamberlain Scholar was an honor and a truly phenomenal experience. At AFP ICON I connected with countless fundraisers … I came back renewed, ready to hit the ground running, and extremely proud of what we as fundraisers do. We are truly the impact profession!"
