September 21, 2020 (HOUSTON) – Houston based commercial real estate firm Hartman Income REIT Management, Inc. (Hartman) announces The Hartman Scholarship Program for Undergraduate Students.
Hartman continues its commitment to the personal development of its employees and their families by making this announcement only weeks following the company’s employee profit sharing announcement.
The Hartman Scholarship Program is eligible to all dependents of full-time Hartman employees pursuing an undergraduate degree in specific fields of study at an accredited Texas college or university. Also, Hartman announced it would make the program eligible to approved dependents in specialty K-12 programs.
“The growth and development of our people is truly the highest calling of leadership.” States Al Hartman, President and CEO of Hartman, “We are blessed and truly excited to allocate benevolence fund contributions not only to our employees but to their families as well.”
The program is an addition to the company’s Benevolence Fund, which was established in 2016 as a way for employees to rally together and extend aid to other employees in need. The fund provides financial aid to employees with sickness and no PTO, hospital or medical-related bills, death in the immediate family, or housing and transportation emergencies. The Benevolence Fund Committee which is made up of five fellow employees and executives at Hartman, approved the allocation of $25,000 to the fund each year to award scholarships of up to $5,000 annually to each applicant.
Upon learning of the newly established Hartman Scholarship Program, Marina Cuellar, a Property Manager for multiple Hartman properties in the Dallas Metroplex proudly shared “I am grateful to work for a company that doesn’t just care about their employees but cares about our families and children as well!”
Melissa Arnold, who joined the company earlier this year as a Property Manager for several of the company’s properties in North Houston, stated, “I love the fact Hartman is involved in this type of giving. I have never seen it with any other company I have worked for!”
Candidates must have a minimum of 3.20 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale and are required to maintain it through their participation in the Scholarship Program.
Selected scholarship recipients will be notified of his or her status by November 15th for the spring semester and July 1st for the fall semester following his or her application. Recipients can renew their scholarship contingent upon maintaining the scholarship qualifications.
The addition of The Hartman Scholarship Program to the Benevolence Fund is Hartman’s latest initiative to support employees and their families. Previous Benevolence Fund initiatives have also included situations such as major surgeries, funerals, car repairs, and legal fees.
