Real Estate Scholarship

Deadline : March 30, 2023

Hi, I’m Tyseanna Walton, a local real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Kennon, Parker, Duncan & Davis. I’m licensed in both Georgia and Alabama. I’m a Columbus native; a graduate of Carver High School and a proud graduate of Albany State University. I’m a former US Army Mechanic and Operation Enduring Freedom veteran with a passion for helping people! I’ve always had a passion for helping others and a heart to give back. I enlisted in the military as just a junior in high school and served for 12 years. The experiences I had while serving in the Army instilled in me the discipline it takes to trust the process, focus on what’s at hand and then what the future could bring. So, when I decided to separate from the Army, I wanted to make sure I could utilize that to continue to serve my community in the best way possible by helping them achieve the dreams of homeownership and building generational wealth through real estate.

To give back to my community, I am excited to offer scholarships for students who are seriously interested in starting a career in real estate. Two new scholarship recipients will be selected every year.

Please read the criteria below and submit all entries via email to Solddbyty@gmail.com, for consideration. Scholarship entries will be accepted January 1st, 2023 -March 29, 2023 by 11:59 PM EST. The application deadline is March 30, 2023.

A) The scholarship is available to high school juniors or seniors.

B) All applications will be reviewed.

C) Scholarships may only be used for tuition of the real estate course. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the school.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

A) A 500-word essay about “Why you want to be a real estate agent and what are some qualities you possess that would make you a great agent? “

  1. B) A letter of recommendation from a teacher. Letters must be signed on school letterhead, and include contact information of the person making the recommendation.

Shawn Carter Foundation

The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) was founded on the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further his or her education. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with going to, surviving in, and graduating from college, the SCSF plays a vital role in increasing college access and success for many motivated yet underserved youth and young adults. The SCSF provides individual grants, paid directly to the educational institution, to every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from admission to graduation. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel and select costs of living. All Shawn Carter Scholars are required to “give back” by conducting community service and by serving as mentors to younger, aspiring Shawn Carter Scholars.
