CFRE International has launched a scholarship programme for EFA members (fundraising associations) who wish to offer the globally recognised credential to individuals within their own national fundraising community.
The Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential is a comprehensive assessment of fundraising knowledge, which is available via hundreds of testing facilities throughout Europe. Candidates that complete the credential may use the CFRE designation and join a global network of over 6,000 peers worldwide.
Within the new programme, up to three scholarships worth USD 700 (€653) each will be awarded per fundraising association (up to a total value of USD 2,100 (€1,959) annually). CFRE International will directly apply the scholarships to the initial CFRE certification fees that would otherwise be paid by those undertaking the credential.
EFA members are invited to apply to CFRE International for scholarship awards by submitting a publicity plan describing how they will promote the scholarships to their membership and the method they will use to select the scholarship recipients.
