Are you a South Florida real estate agent with a college age kid? Good news, the Florida Realtors trade group is offering college scholarships to the children of brokers, the Sun Sentinel reported. The Florida Realtors Education Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, is handing out financial aid starting at $1,000. The funds are open to high achieving Florida students whose parents are real estate agents or employees of real estate boards and will be given out based academic merit, financial need, relationship to the Realtor family and contributions to family, school and community. The program has administered more than $400,000 in 270 scholarships in the past three years, according to the Sun Sentinel.
