The Chris Walker Education Fund Board of Trustees is now accepting grant applications. Applications will be accepted through July 31st.  The fund will award a total of $10,000 in grants to be distributed in August.

The award will be split up into two types of designations, with $5,000 in grants being awarded to institutions, foundations, or associations, and $5,000 being dispersed for individual grants.  Individual grants are intended to support individual industry members’ educational initiatives. This includes grants for industry certifications, such as the Certified Lease and Finance Professionals (CLFP) and NEFA’s Institute for Leasing Professionals (ILP).  Individual grants can be requested up to $1,000, or an amount equal to the cost of a CLFP certification class, ILP education class, or other qualified industry related education.

Grant requests can be sent via email or US Mail (see below), and must include specific details as to how the grant would be utilized. Each grant request will be reviewed by The Chris Walker Education Fund Board of Trustees.
