Jul 12, 2013

Do you want to take a national designation course, but are finding it hard to afford? Earning a National Association of REALTORS designation can give you a competitive edge over your peers, but they are usually more costly than your average continuing education course. The New York State Real Estate Education Foundation (NYSREEF) can help. 

The Education Foundation has awarded almost $150,000 in scholarships to more than 500 REALTORS striving to enhance their careers.  If you would like assistance in achieving your career goals, why not apply for a NYSREEF scholarship?  The application process is simple but the deadline of July 31 is fast approaching, so don’t delay.

Visit, where you’ll find the eligibility requirements and the one-page application.  

Any individual who: has at least one year experience in real estate sales; is licensed and practicing in New York State; and holds primary REALTOR membership in New York State is eligible for one of the designation program scholarships. Scholarship awards are not based on need but applicants should show positive motivation toward real estate education and proven interest in furthering their real estate career.

Scholarship winners will be announced at NYSAR’s Fall Business Meetings. Don’t pass up this opportunity to take a national designation course for free!
