Skystone Partners Announce Changes to Research Prize Guidelines
Liz Knuppel, president and CEO of Skystone Partners, has announced that the AFP/Skystone Partners Research Prize award will increase in 2022 from $3,000 to $5,000, and the grant recipient will be offered a travel stipend to attend AFP ICON in order to share their research findings. Skystone Partners has supported the Research Prize for more than 20 years through an endowment fund in the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy.
“The Research Council and AFP thanks Skystone Partners for its long-time support of this award,” said Lori Overmyer, chair of the AFP Research Council. “The Prize has encouraged scholars to engage in research that extends knowledge of fundraising and philanthropy. It has truly made a difference in our field.”
To be considered for the prize, authors are invited to submit a book or monograph of 50 or more pages that is published by a commercial or a professional organization during the 23 months preceding the current deadline (Oct.1 of each year). The book must be based on applied or basic research related to philanthropy or fundraising.
