The R. Bruce Campbell Grant Fund

 In 2018 IREM Maryland renamed our Past Presidents Grant Fund after R. Bruce Campbell.  Bruce was a two-time past President of the chapter and the long-time legislative committee chair.  No one was a bigger proponent of IREM.  Bruce was an IREM Instructor for years and a winner of the prestigious Lloyd D. Hanford Sr. Distinguished Instructor award from IREM HQ. Bruce passed away in 2018 and is missed every day.  His legacy is indelibly linked to IREM Maryland.  

Whether you’re aspiring to achieve an IREM credential and/or looking to enrich your knowledge, IREM is committed to helping you reach your professional development goals. Cost doesn’t have to be an obstacle IREM has a wide array of scholarships available to help alleviate the financial burdens associated with higher education.

The IREM Maryland R. Bruce Campbell Grant Fund has been established to help those members of the chapter who are experiencing financial hardship or lack financial support from their employers. Grants are available to help with the costs of IREM education courses and seminars.

The fund will provide up to $2000 per applicant to cover the costs of IREM Region 3 IREM CPM® Capstone and Certification exam. The Scholarship is open to all ARM®, ACoM, CPM® Candidates, Associate Members, and Student Members in good standing with the Maryland Chapter.
