Real Estate Scholars Program


The Real Estate Scholars Program was established for students who choose to minor in commercial and investment real estate. Students accepted into the program are eligible for scholarships awarded in the amount of up to $5,000 per student, but not to exceed the full cost of tuition. These funds are made available through the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economics. Real Estate Scholars are required to complete research, mentorship, and other work within the fields of Real Estate and Economics, as determined by the director of the Grant Center.
