Scholarship

Scholarship Overview
Apra Metro DC is pleased to announce our 2021 scholarship opportunity supporting the professional development aspirations of two chapter members! Named for the late, spirited Apra Metro DC board member and unyielding prospect development professional Daniel H. Greeley, this year’s scholarship opportunity is generously supported by our Chapter Sponsor, DonorSearch. We are excited to provide two full scholarships for Apra Metro DC members to attend the 2021 Prospect Development conference, which will be held from July 27th to July 30th, 2021. You are invited to nominate yourself, a colleague, or a direct report. Apply Today!

This is the perfect opportunity for a chapter member who is among the following:

  • New to prospect development and seeking a well-rounded foundation
  • Employed at an organization with low or no professional development funding
  • Seeking new professional development opportunities outside of Apra
  • Seasoned professionals who are seeking continuing education courses


Simply submit an application by June 1, 2021. When the recipient returns from the conference, full of great new ideas, he/she will share what they’ve learned with the Apra Metro DC community.


The Fine Print
Requirements: The application must clearly articulate the applicant’s intended goal for attending the AASP Summit and link it to one or more competencies in Apra’s Body of Knowledge. The applicant is required to certify in their application that they have their employer’s approval to participate in the outlined activities and will be granted leave. Apra Metro DC will not reimburse the recipient for unpaid time off. The recipient will be required to write an article summarizing his/her experience and relate it to the Apra Body of Knowledge to the Apra Metro DC community.

Payment: The payment will be made directly to AASP, not to the chapter member. The payments will cover categories of expenses in the following order: registration, hotel, air or train fare, parking, gas, and mileage. Reimbursements will not be made for any food expenses. If planned activities exceed $1,250, the recipient will pay the excess. Limitations: Should the recipient not fulfill his/her registration for any professional development opportunity, the chapter will seek a refund from the organization. If the funds are not recoverable, the Board of Directors will specify an alternate chapter member to attend the activity. If this is the first of multiple activities, the Board of Directors reserves the right to cancel future planned registrations. If the hosting organization postpones an activity, the recipient will make every effort to attend the makeup date. Exceptions will of course be made in instances of the hosting organization cancelling an activity, inclement weather, serious illness, or family emergencies.

Selection
The scholarship recipient will be selected by the Scholarship Committee. The Committee is comprised of volunteers from the Board of Directors. Committee members are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.
