George R. Harrison Scholarship Fund

Earlier this year, NAA created the George R. Harrison Scholarship Fund, in honor of NAA’s first president and one of the founding members of the association.  George was also a pillar in the San Antonio community. 

The mission of this scholarship fund is to offer opportunities to those who may not otherwise have the means to start a new career in the real estate appraisal field.  As you know, George was a major force in the appraisal profession and was passionate about educating real estate appraisers, which is why he founded The Columbia Institute.  Columbia was ATA’s education provider for many years.

We kicked off the Scholarship Fund during the opening reception at this year’s Appraisal Summit that was held in Las Vegas on September 17, 2023. 

To make a difference, we rely on the support of generous individuals and businesses in our community.  We would be most grateful if you would consider helping us raise funds to help build this scholarship fund. 

Please contact me at (210) 386-5706 or email me at teresa@naappraisers.org if you can support our efforts to make a difference in our industry.

You may donate to the fund by clicking here  https://naappraisers.org/arf and selecting the Scholarship Fund. 

Thank you so much for your kind consideration of our request, and we hope to hear from you soon.
