Annual fellowship of $3,000 - $5,000 to support graduate students working on topics related to community associations. Community associations govern common-interest communities of any kind-condominiums, cooperatives, townhouse developments, planned unit developments, and other developments where homeowners support an association with mandatory financial assessments, and are subject to use and aesthetic restrictions.

Students of all disciplines are welcome to apply for the Hanke Fellowship, provided their studies relate to community associations generally and to the topic of the candidate's proposed community associations research project. Fellows are expected to prepare a research paper on community associations on one of the topics listed below:

-How Community Associations respond to aging infrastructure and aging residents
-Evaluating the impact of short-term rentals (like Airbnb) on Community Associations
