Scholarships

Let Us Help Pay for Your Real Estate Appraisal Education

The Northern California Chapter has awarded over $80,000 in scholarships to more than 145 local recipients within the last 21 years.  Many of the recipients have achieved their goal of receiving their MAI or SRA designations with the aid of our local scholarships:

Northern California Commercial Education Scholarship

The George and Alberta Stauss Scholarship fund has been exhausted after having awarded more than $50,000 in scholarships to worthy recipients over many decades. Nonetheless, there is a continuing desire to offer scholarships to worthy recipient in to encourage MAI candidates to take commercial appraisal education programs offered by the Appraisal institute and obtain their designation.

In recognition of the need to encourage primary and continuing education for individuals belonging to the Northern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, the chapter is pleased to offer this newly created Education Scholarship to assist Commercial (General) Candidates for Designation.

Preference in awarding the scholarships will be given to recipients specializing in commercial (general) real estate rather than residential. Furthermore, while any General Candidate for Designation is encouraged to apply, preference will be given to those actively pursuing the MAI designation. Finally, given the large size of the Northern California Chapter, geographic distribution will also be considered. The scholarship is awarded and administered at the sole discretion of the Northern California Chapter.

Applications for 2022 to be posted in Q2

Northern California Residential Education Scholarship

Preference in awarding the scholarships will be given to recipients specializing in residential real estate rather than commercial (general). Furthermore, while any Residential Candidate for Designation is encouraged to apply, preference will be given to those actively pursuing the SRA designation. Finally, given the large size of the Northern California Chapter, geographic distribution will also be considered. The scholarship is awarded and administered at the sole discretion of the Northern California Chapter.
