The National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA)’s Educational Foundation has selected 64 student/residents to receive scholarships this year. There were more completed applications submitted this year than at any other time since the program’s inception in 2006.

Each individual scholarship is worth $2,500 and the total amount of money awarded this year is $160,000. Additionally, $2,000 will be donated to the Real Estate Management Department at Virginia Tech.

With the money awarded in 2018, the grand total of scholarship money distributed over the 12-year history of the program now exceeds $1,400,000. This year’s class of NAHMA scholars come from 17 different states and the District of Columbia, and represents 13 different regional Affordable Housing Management Associations (AHMAs).

“The foundation is again very pleased to be able to provide financial assistance to worthy residents for the 12th consecutive year. We are especially proud that for the sixth year in a row we have been able to award in excess of $135,000 dollars. The foundation board of directors would like to acknowledge the efforts of the scholarship committee that reviewed all of the applications and selected the winners. And, a special thanks goes out to all of our donors and sponsors without whom none of this would be possible,” Melissa Fish-Crane, NAHMA Educational Foundation chair, said.

The NAHMA Educational Foundation is very pleased to have been able to create this legacy supporting resident academic achievement for the betterment of communities across the country.

The 2018/2019 scholars, including their community, management company, school, grade and major, are listed according to their AHMA.
