The ISA Education Foundation was formed to advance the education, capabilities and skills of personal property appraisers through scholarships. By attending classes through ISA, AAA, ASA, Winterthur or The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, etc. and attending the foundation's annual seminar, recipients gain access to presentations by leading experts in their fields benefiting from a diverse network of industry participants.

Scholarships are awarded to applicants for educational development and skill advancement accomplished by attending courses, classes, and workshops (ISA, ASA, or AAA annual conferences are excluded) related to personal property appraising.  The foundation supports recent graduates, entry level up to seasoned appraisers-anyone seeking excellence and advancement within the appraisal profession by becoming better educated and qualified appraisers. Scholarships monies are raised by the foundation through yearly fund-raising with the goal of ever increasing the amount of funds available.
