Authors of published research works on fundraising and philanthropy are invited to submit a book or monograph of 50 or more pages for the 2023 AFP/Skystone Partners Prize for Research on Fundraising and Philanthropy.

To be considered for the Prize, works must be published by a commercial publishing house or a professional organization between October 1, 2020 and October 1, 2022. Publications must be based on either applied or basic research. All Research Prize entries must reflect a standard publisher selection process without regard to the source and sponsorship of the research. The Prize Jury will not consider unpublished theses or dissertations, self-published works, directories, op-ed pieces, or editorials. If the work is a 2nd or 3rd edition, the applicant must include a description of how it provides a new contribution beyond the last edition.

Cash awards of up to $5,000 will be presented to the winner(s) of the competition. Winners will also be introduced at the AFP Board meeting prior to the AFP International Conference on Fundraising in New Orleans, LA in Spring 2023.

The travel stipend is up to $1,500 for individuals who reside in North America and up to $2,500 for award winners who reside outside North America.
