NEFA Accepting Applications for Chris Walker Education Fund Grants
DEC 7, 2017 - 6:48 am
The Chris Walker Education Fund board of trustees will accept grant applications until December 22. The fund will award $15,000 in grants for projects that further the general education of leasing professionals ——either for individual use based on need or for another project that helps the leasing industry’s educational platform as a whole.
The award will be split up into two types of designations with $8,500 in grants being awarded to institutions, foundations or associations and $6,500 being dispersed for individual grants. This balance of grant disbursements may change depending on the number of grant requests from both groups.
Individual grants are intended to support individual industry members’ educational initiatives. This includes grants for industry education, certifications such as the Certified Lease and Finance Professionals designation or development of content for NEFA’s Online Learning Center or other educational initiatives. Individual grants can be requested up to $1,000, or an amount equal to the cost of qualified industry related education.
