REIS Scholarship Programs

The Real Estate Investment Society has established two scholarship programs to encourage and support students interested in commercial real estate and related professions. A permanent scholarship fund with Florida Gulf Coast University was established in 1999 with a $10,000 endowment.  In 2006, REIS also established the REIS Scholarship Foundation, a not-for-profit, registered 501(c)3 corporation that provides an opportunity to make charitable donations for college scholarships. REIS provides management of the Foundation, allowing 100% of donations to be awarded as scholarships. Information:  Mark Morris,  239.671.2226, REIS Scholarship Chairman.
