BOMA Boston Education Scholarship Mission Statement
The mission of the BOMA Boston Education Scholarship is to support BOMA members in their pursuit of continuing real estate education and professional development opportunities who would otherwise not be able to do so on their own. The BOMA Education Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 to provide BOMA members with access to top-level continuing real estate education courses and programs. The scholarship will benefit those individuals who are currently enrolled in the BOMI education program or are pursuing other course offerings through both BOMA Boston and BOMA International. The BOMA Education Scholarship will be awarded at the annual BOMA Boston TOBY & Industry Awards Dinner on November 17, 2011. To date BOMA Boston has awarded 14 scholarship winners since its inception.
