Click here to see our 2024 Solt Scholarship Recipients


A special tradition began in 1987: the implementation of the James E. Solt Memorial Scholarship. Mr. Solt, a Past President of the Austin Apartment Association, was an exemplary role model with a particular love of the skills required for on-site management and for education. This fund was created to honor his memory and promote education in the rental housing industry.

The Solt Scholarship Fund offers recognition and scholarships for worthy members and/or their employees who participate in the Austin Apartment Association's education programs.

The scholarship is open to all AAA owner/management members who are interested in attaining their professional credential(s). All scholarships will fund, at a minimum, 50% of the cost of the credential course.

Available Solt Scholarships

Certified Apartment Leasing Professional (CALP)

Certified Apartment Manager (CAM)

Certificate of Apartment Maintenance Technician (CAMT)

Certified Apartment Portfolio Supervisor (CAPS)
