James L. Poehlman, Gordon L. Blackwell, Jack Godin, Jr. and CRHD Founders Scholarships 

Each year, the CARH Scholarship Foundation awards four students of CARH-member properties $1,000 per semester for educational expenses, for a maximum of four years of funding. CARH's scholarships are named after James L. Poehlman, Gordon L. Blackwell and Jack Godin, Jr., three CARH members who were instrumental in our association's success, and the newest scholarship, the CRHD Founders Scholarship, is named after all of the founding members of the Council for Rural Housing Development (CRHD, or now known as CARH). CARH is proud to name its scholarships in their honor.  CARH and the Foundation thank all of our members for their support of the Scholarship Fund -- in pledges, special donations and purchases made at the auctions during the 2005-2012 Annual Meetings.
