Cesar, who attends Framingham State University, is one of five Peabody Properties, Inc. residents to receive a NAHMA scholarship.

Eligibility for the scholarship program, now in its 12th consecutive year, requires applicants to be a resident in good standing at an Affordable Housing Management Association-affiliated multifamily community and be either a high school senior with a minimum 2.5 GPA or a matriculated student with a minimum 2.3 GPA at an accredited community college, college, university or trade/technical school.
