Jean Leake Emerging Markets Scholarship

In Jean’s honor, MAR will send two Realtor® members who are committed to serving emerging market communities to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Midyear Legislative meetings held every May in Washington, DC. Please note, since the meetings are being held virtually this year, this scholarship is for May 2022.

Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to serve the emerging markets communities, with particular efforts to increase homeownership among diverse communities in Minnesota. Applicants who are passionate about closing the homeownership gap, immigration issues, community/civic involvement, inclusion and diversity issues, and international real estate markets are encouraged to apply.
