The MAAO Scholarship Fund, named in honor of George E. Angerman Jr, was established in 1992 to help qualified MAAO members who wish to further their education by attending assessment and appraisal courses. It is the desire of MAAO to promote and recognize the initiative of its members seeking their professional growth, professional designations and licensure.
To that end, the George E. Angerman Jr. Scholarship Fund exists to assist in the financial impact of education outside the association’s own programs. All qualified MAAO members are therefore encouraged to review the Fund’s eligibility requirements and conditions.
1. Be a current member of MAAO with a minimum of three consecutive years membership,
2. Demonstrate a desire to improve assessment education and administrative standards, and
3. Submit the required application form to be received by the MAAO Education Committee within 60 days prior to, but no later than 60 days after, qualifying educational course work.
1. Qualifying educational course work is defined as granting a minimum of 15 hours assessment or appraisal studies by which a letter or certificate of completion can demonstrate examination success and the assignment of full credit. Continuing Education Units for licensure renewal do not meet the scholarship conditions.
2. Recipients will receive scholarships after fulfilling application requirements and conditions. An accurate accounting supported by receipts and crediting must be presented before cash disbursements will be made. Only the costs of course tuition and materials qualify for award consideration.
3. A course of instruction outline, as well as the name of the school or sponsoring organization, must be submitted with the scholarship application, accompanied by a copy of the letter or certificate of both course and examination success.
4. Scholarship recipients are ineligible to apply for another award for two years.
5. Successful applicants who subsequently decline the scholarship must reapply for future consideration.
6. Applicants must certify that no other tuition or course materials reimbursement has been awarded, nor will be sought, from any other source (e.g. County, state, local jurisdiction or other educational or professional body)
7. An application must be submitted with an original signature.
The George E. Angerman Jr Scholarship Fund Committee will make all final selections, notify recipients and announce their names in the MAAO newsletter. Selections will be made based on the application information received, amount of aid requested, funds available and eligibility. Cash disbursements for all awards given each year may not exceed income available in the trust.
