The IFMA Foundation is announcing the 2013 FM Student Scholarships Program. These scholarships will be awarded to the highly qualified FM students at the 2013 World Workplace in Philadelphia, Pa, October 3, 2013.
In 2012, the IFMA Foundation set records for FM student scholarships – an all time high of US$167,200 in total was awarded to 43 FM students from around the world!
The FM Scholarship Program is a great offering to deserving FM students that demonstrate exceptional educational work and activities. The FM Scholarship Program is not only a great way to support the FM profession and the IFMA Foundation, but can also:
- Bring an added level of exposure to your chapter, council, company or FM organization; and
- Offer a way to pay tribute to those who have gone above and beyond in service by naming the scholarship in their honor.
Your chapter, council, company or organization can offer a scholarship through the IFMA Foundation in a number of ways:
- A one-time scholarship donation.
- An annual scholarship with funds provided by your organization through fundraisers, locally managed investments, etc.
- Establishment of a scholarship fund within the IFMA Foundation.
All scholarships granted through the Foundation must be a minimum of US$1,500, plus US$1,500 to allow the student to attend IFMA’s World Workplace and for travel, meals, accommodations and other Foundation expenses related to the program. Students and scholarship sponsors are recognized at the annual education reception at World Workplace, and are published in the award-winning Facility Management Journal, Foundation newsletter, Foundation gala program, press releases, Foundation website and other outlets.
The 2013 scholarship process has been launced! If your organization has offered a scholarship in the past, we’ll be in touch to confirm your participation this year.
