Once again, we are excited to announce the return of the Jill Friedman Fixler Professional Development Scholarship for Points of Light Conference. In the years since her death, Jill’s family has generously partnered with Points of Light to honor her memory with a scholarship to help professionals and emerging leaders learn and gain the skills needed to accelerate people-powered change in their community and around the world. Jill was the founder of the company JFFixler Group, the company that has become VQ Volunteer Strategies, and we are honored to carry on her legacy every day, as well as to be a part of this scholarship program. Join us at Points of Light 2019 and, if costs are a barrier, consider applying for this scholarship.
The Jill Friedman Fixler Scholarship
The Jill Friedman Fixler Scholarship is open to volunteer mangers or leaders and provides the recipient with registration and travel reimbursement (up to $1,500 USD) to attend the 2019 Points of Light Conference. Each year, this scholarship assists an individual in meeting their professional development needs, with the opportunity to learn from, share with and be inspired by leaders in the volunteer and service field. Applicants must inspire and engage volunteers, be committed to the field of volunteer engagement, and demonstrate financial need in attending the conference. Applications are due Friday, March 15.
