CREW Network Foundation Scholarship Endowment Program
This program provides financial assistance and support to female students seeking to complete a degree in commercial real estate. The scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to junior and senior level undergraduate female students and those enrolled in graduate programs, to help cover the rising costs of tuition and books. Students must be enrolled in an accredited real estate program or other fields of study that directly correlate with the commercial real estate industry. Scholarship recipients are required to complete a summer internship at a commercial real estate brokerage firm and participate in the CREW Network eMentoring program during at least the last 12 months following receipt of the scholarship. The number of awards distributed are determined based on the availability of interest income from the CREW Network Endowment Fund, donations and Corporate Matching funding programs. The specific dollar amount of the scholarship varies annually, but will be no less than $5,000. For more information, please visit www.crewnetwork.org
