Illinois Real Estate Educational Foundation Scholarships are intended to help qualified students pursue an education, which will lead them into productive careers in the real estate industry. It is the foundation’s hope that each recipient will, during his or her career, contribute to the Foundation in support of the scholarship they received. The resulting growth of the fund will ensure other qualified individuals a similar opportunity to pursue a vocation in the real estate industry.
Each REEF Scholarship has its own criteria for eligibility. Most of the scholarships require the applicant to be a United States citizen and a resident of the State of Illinois attending school full-time while pursuing a degree with an emphasis in real estate. The Rich Port and Roxane Malo Scholarships are offered to those who have been licensed real estate agents in Illinois for a minimum of one year. Scholarship deadlines vary.
