The Vail Board of REALTORS' Foundation Scholarship is open to any Eagle County resident and is based on academic merit and financial need. Applicants must be enrolling in or returning to a college, university or accredited academic institution of higher learning in the fall of the current year as a full time student. In 2018, the VBRF Scholarship received 16 applications, ranging from new high-school graduates entering college, to graduate school applicants. Five scholarships of $2,000 each were awarded in 2018.
Scholarships may be awarded in amounts up to $2,000.00 each. The number of scholarships and award amounts are based upon the VBRF budget and determined by the qualifications and number of applicants each year.
VBRF's scholarship fund has provided six individuals with financial assistance to attend, or to continue attending a college, university or accredited academic institution of higher learning. All five scholarship recipients are attending college full time.
