PREA 1997 Scholarship Winners

In 1997, PREA awarded eight $2,500 scholarships to graduate students majoring or concentrating in real estate. An essay contest was distributed to 400 schools with masters degree programs in real estate. The scholarship contest yielded 36 submissions from 20 schools with many high quality essays. Competition was stiff, with many high quality essays. Scholarship recipients were selected by the scholarship committee.
