The Karen Franz
The Karen Franz Scholarship Fund was established in the memory of Karen Franz, a very dynamic and well-loved woman, who had a sincere passion for our organization.
Funds to develop this scholarship came from raffle donations that were made in 1998, to assist Karen, who was in the later stages of ALS, or ”Lou Gehrig’s disease”. Unfortunately, Karen did not survive long enough to benefit from the funds. After she passed, the State WCR Executive committee felt the most appropriate use of the left-over funds, were to honor Karen’s memory with a scholarship fund. The Arizona Assn. of REALTORS doubled the available funds with an additional donation.
That is how the Karen Franz Scholarship fund got started.
The scholarship is available to qualified members of the Arizona State Chapter (See Guidelines below), who have taken educational classes to further their real estate knowledge, and improve their leadership skills.
