The Real Estate Investment Society has established the scholarship program 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 2011 it was named the Paul Sands Memorial - REIS Scholarship in memory of REIS member and governor Paul Sands. A portion of proceeds from the annual Paul Sands Memorial Slaw Dog invitational golf tournament are added to the scholarship fund each year.
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: Bob Bassett, 239.690.4869, REIS Scholarship Chairman.
