Scholarship Application

The Memphis chapter of IREM offers scholarships to those who express an interest in earning one of IREM’s credentials. The objective of the scholarship program is to provide property management professionals the opportunity to earn the IREM designation without suffering financial hardship. The scholarship is calculated using the Member rate and may be used for tuition only. The recipient may enroll in their choice of course, on-line or classroom style.

Applicants are required to submit the following documents to their local IREM Chapter:

1. Scholarship application
2. Resume
3. Letter of recommendation from your supervisor
4. Letter of support from any IREM member

Selection Criteria:

  • Demonstrated commitment to real estate management as evidenced by employment in the industry
  • A level of professionalism and ethical performance as indicated by current supervisor and IREM member
  • Intent of earning an IREM credential (ARM©, ACoM©, CPM©)


The applicant cannot receive a scholarship and be reimbursed after attending an IREM course. Providing that funds are available, IREM’s objective is to pay 100% of the tuition in advance. Please note, however, that funding limitations can apply. It is expected that the applicant will attend 100% of the course and pass all final examinations. Scholarships from the IREM Foundation are also available, and the applicant is encouraged to pursue this source of funding as applicable.

Scholarships must be used in the calendar year awarded. All scholarships expire December 31 in the year awarded. Scholarship requests are reviewed every month between the 15th and end of the month. Applications will be reviewed in January, March, May, July, September and November. The application must be received by the 15th of the given month. A decision will be communicated on or before the end of the same calendar month. Applicants should submit their application and supporting documents either in writing or via email to both of the following IREM Memphis Chapter #20 members:
