Real Estate Scholars Program


The Real Estate Scholars Program was established for undergraduate and MBA students studying commercial and investment real estate at Coastal Carolina University. Students accepted into the program are eligible for scholarships and are required to complete research, club leadership, event coordination, mentorship, and other work within the fields of real estate and economics, as determined by the director of the Grant Center. The scholarship is made possible through a generous donation from Tony and Carrie Grant Fund, the benefactors and namesake of the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economics.
