Industrial Auctioneers Association Scholarship Fund & Application

Scholarship Fund

The IAA is committed to making an impact in our communities, and the Scholarship Fund is a vital way of giving back to the ones who have helped us to succeed. Started in 2015, the Scholarship program is another benefit of membership in the Industrial Auctioneers Association. By contributing to the fund during the year, our Association can provide students whose parents are employed in their IAA-member company an opportunity to receive a monetary grant to be put towards their education. The Fund is an opportunity to receive grant money for a recognized Post-Secondary Institution, be used for tuition assistance to college, vocational, technical or graduate school study.

Scholarship Trust Program

IAA members are invited to establish a Trust of their own. Trusts can be established in a company’s name, the donor’s name, or in honor of an individual. This is a lasting legacy that will continue to support students annually. Once a Trust is established, and contributions made to the Trust have reached a minimum total of $2,000, a student will receive a scholarship in the Trust’s name.

In 2018, our first Trust, the Mark Weitz Memorial Trust, was opened and established by Adam Alexander in honor of Mark Weitz, who passed away August 2018 at the age of 58.

In 2019, our second Trust, the Norman Jacobs Trust, was opened by Terrance, Andrea, Jordan and Sydney Jacobs in celebration of their father, father-in-law, and grandfather who turned 90 years old on August 31, 2019.

Most recently, in honor of the passing of Myron Bowling we established the Myron Bowling Memorial Trust.

If you wish to establish a Trust, Please contact Samantha Tivin, IAA Executive Director.

Applications for the 2023-2024 academic year application will be accepted beginning March 2023
