Real estate education grants are intended to fund projects for the improvement and development of real estate education.
Current and Past Grantees
Since 1975, annual grants typically have been awarded to a community college hosting the Real Estate Education Center. The Center transfers between colleges when a new grantee is selected through a competitive process. For the past five years, Saddleback College has been the recipient of the grant and host of the Center. The Real Estate Education Center actively promotes quality real estate education in California’s community colleges. The Center works with instructors to ensure quality instruction and actively encourages and supports students seeking vocational real estate and appraisal education.
