AFP-Quebec understands the economic challenges that current members face as a result of the ongoing global pandemic. In response to the current conditions, AFP-Quebec is pleased to announce a new initiative, Year-long Education Fund Scholarship: the availability of 12 scholarships of $200 each that may be credited towards any AFP-Quebec workshop or course in 2021.

In response to the developing “leadership gap” in our field, we will be reserving 4 scholarships for emerging leaders in fundraising (7-15 years in the industry). Also, in an effort to promote inclusivity, equity and accessibility throughout our organization, we will reserve 4 scholarships for members who identify as belonging to historically underrepresented communities within the fundraising profession (details below).
