Chamberlain Scholarship

The Chamberlain Scholarship program honors Ralph E. Chamberlain, CFRE. Mr. Chamberlain’s dedication to the organization we now know as AFP never faltered in his long volunteer career with the Association. Because of his long-time support of the Foundation’s annual fund and generous planned gift, the AFP Board of Directors renamed their Conference Scholar Program in 2000 to honor Mr. Chamberlain’s memory and commitment to the Association.

The AFP Foundation offers every AFP chapter one Chamberlain Scholarship each year, which covers the recipient’s conference registration to AFP ICON. In addition, the AFP Utah Chapter will provide the recipient with a $500 travel stipend.

Recipient will receive:
  • One conference registration to AFP ICON
  • $500 travel stipend
  • Must be a fundraising professional working in the state of Utah
  • First time attendee to the AFP ICON conference
