Since 1997 the FIABCI Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $100,000 in grants to students from more than twenty different countries who show interest in international real estate. Scholarships grants are available to students from Academic Member Universities who demonstrate academic achievement, international goals – particularly the vision to help meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals – and need financial support. Grants are awarded twice each year in March and September.
Another outstanding international real estate student has been awarded a grant to continue graduate work at New York University by the FIABCI Scholarship Foundation. For over twenty-five years, the Foundation has supported the next generation of cross border real estate professionals who have shown academic achievement, have clear international goals, financial need and a history of community involvement.
