AFN’s Academic Scholarships

Supporting the Next Generation of Women in Logistics

Creating a diverse workplace starts well before we welcome new members to the AFN team. Starting with the 2017 fall semester, AFN will award $18,000 in total scholarship funding over the course of three years to undergraduate women majoring in supply chain-related programs at two of the nation’s most respected supply chain and logistics programs: Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and Michigan State University’s Eli Broad College of Business.

IU’s AFN Women’s Empowerment in Supply Chain Scholarship will provide $9,000 over three years to undergraduates majoring in supply chain with a 3.0 minimum GPA. To learn more about learn more about the Kelley School of Business, visit the School’s website.

“The Kelley School of Business at Indiana University is proud to partner with AFN to offer the AFN Women’s Empowerment in Supply Chain Scholarship. This scholarship is an exceptional opportunity that is directed specifically towards empowering women to join the supply chain industry, and directly supports our goal of increasing opportunities for women to study at Kelley.”

“The logistics and supply chain industry is dynamic, fast-growing, and ripe with opportunity. And yet, women are underrepresented in this exciting and lucrative field. As a people-powered business, we believe that supporting young women that seek to study and ultimately join our industry is a win for employers, their customers, and the students themselves. Forging women’s advancement starts by giving women more opportunity in the classroom to grow the skills needed to succeed.”
