.: About the Scholarship

Mission Statement 

The GBREB Foundation scholarship provides deserving high school graduates, who reside in the 54 GBREB communities, with financial assistance for their post-secondary education. The scholarship represents another opportunity for members of the real estate industry to give back to their communities and increase educational opportunities for those less fortunate.  



How the Scholarship Works

The first $120,000 in scholarships will be awarded this spring to students attending college in the fall of 2012 and will be based on financial need, academic achievement, leadership, extra-curricular involvement, and short written essays. The Massachusetts non-profit company ACCESS has been retained to manage the scholarship program. ACCESS is Massachusetts' leading provider of financial aid advising and scholarships and has provided financial aid advising and scholarships to more than 50,000 students since 1985, helping them realize their higher education goals and giving them a better foundation for a successful and productive future.

Students have until April 1, 2012 to apply and applications are available on line at CLICK HERE as well as online at www.accessedu.org.
