Advance Your Career With Scholarship Support


The Southeastern Wisconsin chapter’s commitment to education and training is supported by several scholarship opportunities. Applications are accepted throughout the year and are awarded by the Scholarship  Committee.  You must be a member of AFP Southeastern Wisconsin to be eligible for a conference or education scholarship.


Each year, our chapter offers three scholarships to assist chapter members in good standing to be able to attend the Association of Fundraising Professionals International Conference.  (ICON)

AFP ICON 2021 will be held in Minneapolis on June 28-30, both in-person and online. The scholarship application process will open in the early spring of 2021 to attend the conference in 2021. 

Congratulations to our 2018-2019 scholarship recipients!

Planning for the 2021 FDWI Conference is underway. Stay tuned for more details!
