BOMA Boston is pleased to present the Larry Lenrow CRE Education Scholarship to support entry-level commercial real estate professionals looking to enhance their commercial real estate careers. Larry passed away in June 2020, and he will be forever missed by the BOMA Boston community. This scholarship serves to honor his legacy as a dedicated real estate executive. Five scholarships are awarded annually and this year’s recipients will be announced at the TOBY & Industry Awards on November 17th.

The commercial real estate industry has a professional certification that provides early recognition for foundational knowledge and guides the next generation of property managers toward greater responsibility and success in their careers: The Certified Manager of Commercial Properties (CMCP). The CMCP is the only certification of its kind for early career commercial property managers – you may qualify with as little as one year’s experience. Learn more at
