Real Estate Education Endowment

Supporting community college real estate education.

The Real Estate Education Endowment is a permanent fund established by the State of California Real Estate Commissioner in 1975. For over 35 years, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office managed the fund and executed all necessary activities in coordination with a Real Estate Advisory Board and the Department of Real Estate. In July of 2015, FoundationCCC took over administrative responsibilities of the endowment and now oversees investments and the day-to-day activities required in managing funds.

Primary activities supported by the Real Estate Education Endowment include:

  • Grants in support of projects that promote, enhance, or advance the proficiency of real estate practitioners through real estate courses provided by California community colleges, in alignment with the priority needs of the field.
  • The maintenance and support of a scholarship program for students enrolled in real estate career-oriented programs.

The Real Estate Education Scholarship Program is a scholarship program for eligible, economically disadvantaged students. Awards are for students who are in need of financial assistance to meet the cost of attendance at a California community college and who have demonstrated interest in a real estate career through their enrollment in real estate related courses.

Real estate education grants are intended to fund projects for the improvement and development of real estate education.
