Membership Scholarships Available in 2024

The AFP Maryland Chapter is pleased to offer scholarship opportunities this year for Chapter membership. Each year the Chapter and its Board of Directors make a commitment to supporting new or lapsed members who are interested in advancing their fundraising careers through membership in AFP. 

Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve policy and will be distributed on a rolling basis. We encourage you to get your applications in early! 

We as an industry have been deeply impacted by the current global pandemic. Our goal is to provide these scholarships so that new or current and lapsed members can still utilize the benefits of Chapter membership during this unprecedented time. As a fundraising professional, the support of your colleagues and professional development opportunities is needed now more than ever. The scholarship will cover your entire membership dues for one year to begin at the start date of Chapter approval and notification of scholarship. If your membership is set to renew by December 31, 2024 you are eligible to apply. Applicants who have received a scholarship from the Chapter are not eligible to reapply for 24 months preceding their approval. Scholarship recipients are expected to serve on an AFP Maryland Chapter committee for one year and actively engage with AFP programs and events.
