California Association of Realtors Scholarships
Scholarship Sponsored by California Association of Realtors
The California Association of REALTORS® Scholarship Foundation was established in 1948. The foundation, which was originally called the Glenn D. Willaman Real Estate Foundation, was suggested and started at the Silver Anniversary Testimonial Banquet for Glenn D. Willaman, the Association's first Executive Officer, at the 42nd Convention of the California Real Estate Association (as C.A.R. was previously known) in 1946. The Association wished to honor Willaman for his twenty-five years of service to it and started the Foundation with $1,874.38 in cash, a $1,000 bond and some donation pledges.
The purpose of the Foundation is to provide scholarships to help students whose intelligence, qualities of leadership and health make them assets worth developing for the future good of the state and encourage people going into the real estate business to obtain a quality real estate education. The C.A.R. Scholarship Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) public charity.
