Eligibility and Application
The IFMA Foundation scholarship program has awarded more than US$1.4 million dollars to more than 576 students since the program started in the early 1990s. Scholarship recipients receive a cash award and fully subsidized World Workplace conference travel, registration and participation.
The individual scholarships range in value from US$1,500 to $10,000 and are awarded to undergraduate (2-year and 4-year) and graduate students enrolled in facility management or FM-related (built environment) programs.
These scholarships change lives and are a principal strategy in creating the next generation of FM professionals. The Global Workforce Initiative explores the expansion of scholarship opportunities. High school seniors, associate degree students, working students and veterans are encouraged to apply.
