The Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) Foundation is excited to announce the recipients of this year’s scholarships. The ABoR Foundation received over 250 applications from qualified individuals. After reviewing these applications, the Foundation selected 16 recipients for the 2011 Scholarship funds. These students have displayed excellence both in academics and in their involvement within their local communities.
For the first time, the ABoR Foundation awarded a two-year $4,000 Treaty Oak American Business Women Scholarship to Seihak Long of Travis High School. A new $1,000 Sophomore Second Year Foundation Scholarship was also awarded to Jessica Stamper of Texas State University. Stamper is a previous 2010 freshman recipient.
“Higher education is extremely important to the members of the Austin Board of REALTORS®. We are proud to support these amazing and dedicated students who make Central Texas a vibrant community.
