|Raymond F. Gates, Jr.
Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Gates Scholarship Fund is now a part of the Connecticut Association of REALTORS® Foundation, Inc. which is a 501(c)(3) corporation and classified as a public charity.
The Raymond F. Gates, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1976 in memory of Raymond F. Gates, Jr. following his tragic death in an automobile accident. Mr. Gates was the Executive Vice President of the Connecticut REALTORS®.
Originally the fund was intended to assist Mr. Gates' children through college. Once this objective was met, the fund was expanded to benefit the children of Connecticut REALTORS®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATES® and local Board-Association/CTR staff.
Over the past 40 years, children of REALTORS® have been awarded scholarships totaling nearly $850,000!
Students can apply for ONE of two scholarship categories: academic excellence, based solely upon academic factors or scholastic achievement, based upon academic factors, extracurricular activities and an essay.
With the ever-rising costs of college today, our goal is to strengthen this program to increase the number of scholarships awarded and thereby expand our ability to "Invest in America's Future".
