James Solt Scholarship
Thank you for submitting for a James E. Solt Scholarship. Recipients will be announced at the Property of the Year Awards in June.
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 members who are interested in attaining their professional credential(s). The scholarships awarded pay for a portion of the total cost of each credential course.
