Real Estate Education Scholarships

Supporting community college real estate education.

The Real Estate Education Scholarship Program is designed for eligible, economically disadvantaged students who are interested in pursuing a career in real estate. By providing financial assistance to cover the cost of attending a California community college, the program can help break down financial barriers that might otherwise prevent these students from pursuing their educational goals.

Scholarship Funds

Funds are determined each year by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office based on annual investment earnings of the scholarship endowment. Scholarship funds are disbursed on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we encourage colleges to submit invoices as soon as possible.

A total of $60,000 is available for the academic year 2024-25 with the following award amounts:

  • $600 per semester, adjusted proportionately for quarter term colleges
  • $1,200 per academic year

Student application period: September 2, 2024 – April 30, 2025 or until all funds are allocated. Are you eligible? Refer to the guidelines at the bottom of this page.
