Eligibility and Application

The IFMA Foundation Scholarship

The IFMA Foundation scholarship  program has awarded more than $1.4 million dollars to more than  527 students since the program  started in the early 1990’s. Scholarship recipients receive a  cash award and fully subsidized  World Workplace conference travel,  registration and participation.

The individual scholarships  range in value from $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  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 to high school seniors, associate degree  students, and veterans.

Eligibility requirements for applicants:

  • Must be enrolled at an accredited institution for a Facility Management or related field. “Degree” (Associate, Bachelor, and Graduate) is determined by your institution at the time of application submission
  • Must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 in FM or related courses. For international students, equivalent documentation of academic achievement level equivalent to a 4.0 GPA. Click International Grade Equivalencies as a basis to determine eligibility.
  • Applicants awarded a scholarship are required to attend IFMA’s  World Workplace Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, TX. – October 9th to October 11th and participate in the IFMA Foundation activities.
  • Working students are encouraged to apply.
