In the future, AFTI would like to expand its scholarship program, both in terms of the number of
scholarships given and-assuming we return to a full in-person Annual Conference-the amount of
the scholarship. Doing so will make it possible for more students to attend.
Many of us have suffered a drop in business. Therefore, I would like to ask you to donate to AFTI's
scholarship program-perhaps not now, but when you can. Simply go to www.AFTI.org and click
on the Donate button. Or keep us in mind for when business picks up again. You can also donate to
AFTI when you renew your ATA membership.
Founded in 1997, AFTI is a 501(c)(3) foundation affiliated with the American Translators
Association. AFTI-ATA's charitable arm-supports activities, education, and research in support of
the translation and interpreting professions. AFTI promotes this objective by bestowing awards and
scholarships, as well as sponsoring conference attendance and presentations.
