Scholarship Program Information - For Sponsors

IFMA Foundation FM Student Scholarship Program


201​8 scholarships will be awarded to highly qualified FM students at the World Workplace Conference in ​Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at the IFMA Foundation's annual Celebration Fundraiser and Academic Awards.

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;
  • 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.
  • Smaller chapters with limited funds may choose to join together to co-sponsor scholarships.

All Foundation scholarships must be a minimum scholarship award of US$1,500, plus US$2,000 to allow the student to attend IFMA’s World Workplace and for travel, meals, accommodations and other related expenses.  Students and scholarship sponsors are recognized at the Foundation's annual academic awards which will be held in conjunction with the Foundation Celebration on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.  

If you would like to offer a scholarship, please contact ​Jeff Tafel, Foundation Executive Director at or 713-623-4362.
