The New York City Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals is proud to offer a limited number of scholarships to Fundraising Day in New York. Funding for the scholarships is provided by members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, who recognize the importance of developing professional skills in their field through training at the nation's largest single-day conference on fundraising.

The scholarship entitles recipients to attend the full conference free of charge, as well as attend a special scholar orientation. (The fees for the conference range from $375 to $550, depending on time of registration.) Each application must be accompanied by a $25 application fee. The application fee will be returned if a scholarship is not awarded.

To qualify for a scholarship, an applicant must be currently employed by or volunteering for a 501(c)(3) organization and must live or work within the geographic boundaries of the New York City Chapter of AFP (the five boroughs of New York City and the surrounding suburbs). Applicants should also be either:

a. A full-time or part-time fundraiser who is new to the field.

b. An individual with extensive volunteer and/or professional experience in the nonprofit sector who seeks to expand his or her knowledge of fundraising.

To be considered for a Maurice Gurin Scholarship, please complete the application. All attachments can be submitted through our Scholarship Dropbox

For more information, please call FRDNY Conference Management at 516-385-8122 or email


Incomplete applications will not be considered. Those who do not receive a scholarship will be able to register until June 22 at the "special early" member registration fee of $375.00.
