Professional Standards

Professional Standards Scholarships

KAR appreciates the dedicated volunteers who make the professional standards process possible for REALTORS® across the state. 

For the professional standards scholarships, KAR allots one of the two state slots to a member of  the Lexington, Louisville or Northern Kentucky board on a rotating annual basis, due to the large number of members they represent. The other scholarship is awarded based on completion of the KAR scholarship application and is open to all REALTOR® members of KAR’s local boards and associations to apply. The scholarship is awarded based upon the following criteria: a. attendance at previous NAR Professional Standards Education Seminars; b. Professional Standards experience; and c. KAR participation. 

Each winner will receive up to $1,500 as reimbursement for expenses directly related to attending the NAR Professional Standards Education Seminar in August each year in Chicago, IL. The program for the seminar includes training on conduct of hearings, procuring cause, due process, mediation, the role of the grievance committee, hearing panels, and board of directors. Participants will learn more about writing an ethics decision and will have an opportunity to interact with experienced instructors and staff of the National Association of REALTORS®.
