Alexandria, Va., Feb. 20, 2024 ? The 2024 NAHMA Educational Foundation scholarship season is open, and the online digital application is now available. To access the application, visit nahma.communityforce.com. The deadline for completed applications is 10 p.m. Eastern on May 10.
 
The application has been revised to make it more user-friendly and to secure more completed submissions. This will be the 17th consecutive year the foundation will make scholarships available to worthy student residents.
 
Eligibility for the program requires that an applicant be a resident in good standing at an AHMA- or NAHMA-member multifamily community and be either a high school senior with a minimum GPA of 2.5; or a high school equivalency diploma holder or matriculated college student with a minimum GPA of 2.3 at an accredited community college, college, university, or trade/technical school. Applications from students in graduate-level programs are not accepted.
 
The required application components include an application form, one reference, an essay, and a certification of residency in good standing form. Additionally, an official grade transcript showing courses taken and grades awarded through the fall semester of the 2023/2024 school year is also required, and it is the only component submitted to the foundation via mail. All necessary forms are provided within the web-based software.
 
In 2023, the foundation selected 111 student residents to receive scholarships. Each scholarship was worth $3,500; the total scholarship money awarded last year was $388,500. Additionally, $2,000 was donated to the Department of Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management at Virginia Tech for scholarships for students pursuing their bachelor's degree in property management.
 
Anyone with questions about the application process or the scholarship program should contact Dr. Bruce W. Johnson, NAHMA scholarship program administrator, at 215-262-4230 or bjohnson@tmo.com.
