ACREL Charitable Foundation


ACREL Scholars

In 2022, the ACREL Cares Committee introduced the ACREL Scholars program, which awards scholarships to students pursuing a career in Real Estate Law.  In addition, ACREL provides a mentorship opportunity for each ACREL Scholar. The program is intended to increase diversity in the practice of real estate law, as well as introduce ACREL to law schools and the next generation of real estate lawyers.  ACREL partners with law schools in the cities where ACREL meets in-person, allowing ACREL Scholars to attend the full ACREL Program, interact with their mentors and network with ACREL Fellows.
