The mission of the IREM Foundation is to be a resource for people and organizations seeking to advance the profession of real estate management. This fundamental desire is what drives its activities. Supporting the development of industry members is at the very core of the Foundation’s purpose.
Regardless of the career level at which professionals find themselves, the Foundation has a program that can help and is eager to be a resource. If now is a great time to jump-start your career—what better way to do that than by earning an IREM credential? The IREM Foundation is prepared to assist. Already have an IREM credential? The Foundation can still assist you in supporting the professional development of your team.
Scholarships are a great way to take advantage of what the Foundation has to offer. They are available for IREM education and can put practitioners on the fast track to achieving their career success goals. In 2018, the IREM Foundation activated 543 scholarships, with recipients taking courses leading to the CPM, ARM and ACoM to further their education and industry experience. Such pursuits benefit everyone—the individual, the firm where the individual is employed and the property management business as a whole.
IREM Members who have an interest in earning one of IREM’s credentials—CPM, ARM and ACoM—can apply for scholarships, which provide partial tuition for up to three IREM courses in classroom or on-demand delivery formats, providing flexibility to suit the lives of busy industry professionals. To qualify for a scholarship, an applicant must meet one of the following requirements:
- Be a current IREM Member (Academic, ACoM, ARM, Associate, CPM Candidate, CPM, or Student), have paid current national and chapter dues in full and express an intent of earning an IREM credential.
- Be a current employee of an AMO Firm and express an intent of earning an IREM credential. Bonus: Upon successful completion of the course(s) paid for by a scholarship, an AMO Firm employee may be eligible for a one-year complimentary Associate membership.
Scholarship applications may be submitted at any time and are reviewed monthly:
- Applications received by the 15th of the month are reviewed that month.
- Applications received after the 15th of a month are reviewed the following month.
