Your AFAN Steering Committee is excited to announce that AFAN will be awarding even more in scholarships to the membership for the year of 2020. $5,800 has been allocated across 11 separate grants, including a new Local Area Groups category. The purpose of these scholarships is to provide members with the resources to further their astrological knowledge, enhance their professional skills and engage more with the astrological community.
