Whether you’re aspiring to achieve an IREM credential and/or looking to enrich your knowledge, IREM is committed to helping you reach your professional development goals. Cost doesn’t have to be an obstacle – IREM has a wide array of scholarships available to help alleviate the financial burdens associated with higher education.

IREM offers scholarship programs at the national level through the IREM Foundation. The IREM Foundation awards scholarships to qualified students at all career stages, from those currently enrolled in college to those working towards an IREM credential.

The Hawaii Chapter offers the Aaron M. Chaney Scholarship which benefits real estate managers already in the industry and enables them to attend IREM certification courses.

Aaron M. Chaney Scholarship
Often regarded as the dean of property management in Hawaii, Aaron M. Chaney believed in an ethical approach to business, personal discipline, and the continuing education of industry professionals throughout the islands. He was the founder of Aaron M. Chaney Inc., which later became Chaney, Brooks & Co., the largest property management company in the state.

The Hawaii Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management® conducts the administration of the Aaron M. Chaney Scholarship. It has complete and final authority to confer or revoke scholarships, make other decisions pertaining to the use of funds in the scholarship program, and determine specific courses that recipients shall attend.

Applicants must express an interest in earning one of IREM®'s credentials, as outlined on the application, and submit the required documentation for funding consideration.

The Aaron M. Chaney Scholarship provides partial tuition - 50% of the member tuition rate per course for a recipient to attend up to three (3) IREM" classroom courses in Hawaii per year.

The scholarship may be used for tuition only and does not cover the cost of fees (i.e., application fees and management plan registration fee), dues, travelrelated expenses or any other expenses. Recipients may reapply for additional scholarship funding if needed upon completion of the current scholarship.

Scholarships must be used in the calendar year awarded. No extensions will be granted.

Applications must be submitted within 45 days before the start of the course. The applicant will be notified of scholarship funding prior to the start of the course.
Applications are reviewed and approved monthly, usually the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Executive Council meeting.

Applications may be sent by mail, e-mail, or fax.
