The Appraisal Institute Education Trust Scholarship is awarded each year to graduate and undergraduate students on the basis of academic excellence and is intended to help finance the educational endeavors of individuals concentrating in real estate appraisal, land economics, real estate, or allied fields.

The scholarships are $3000 for graduate students and $2000 for undergraduate students (sophomore, juniors, or seniors).

Applications are due no later than March 15, 2009.

Minorities and Women Scholarship Fund

The Appraisal Institute's Diversity Committee offers ongoing scholarships to encourage more minorities and women to enter the appraisal profession. These scholarships are funded by the Appraisal Institute Education Trust.

Educational Scholarship Fund

Student affiliate members of the Appraisal Institute are encouraged to apply for the Minority and Women Educational Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to minority and women college students pursuing academic degrees in real estate appraisal and related fields. The scholarship program offers scholarships of at least $1000 to full-time and part-time students enrolled in degree-granting junior colleges, colleges, or universities. Please note that a scholarship applicant is not required to be a student affiliate member of the Appraisal Institute to be considered. The application deadline for the Educational Scholarship is April 15, 2009.

Regional Scholarship Program

The Appraisal Institute Diversity Committee awards scholarships to minority and women associate members of the Appraisal Institute who need financial assistance to take advanced Appraisal Institute courses leading to the MAI or SRA designation. The applications are awarded on a rolling basis until the funds for the member's Appraisal Institute region are exhausted. To be considered in the first group of applications, students should have their applications to the Diversity Committee by December 15, 2008. Students are strongly encouraged to apply early as an unprecedented amount of applications were received in 2008, and the fund was exhausted by July!
