Lawrence, Kansas, USA – Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network Foundation has selected 30 female college students to receive a total of $150,000 in scholarships for the 2022-23 academic year, in addition to valuable network and career building opportunities. CREW Network Foundation’s scholarship program has granted nearly $1.3 million to 226 female students at 112 universities across 38 states/provinces in the U.S. and Canada since 2008.
Each student will receive $5,000 USD (or the Canadian dollar equivalent) for tuition and books, a paid internship opportunity, a six-month mentoring opportunity, a complimentary 24-month CREW Network student membership, and a complimentary registration to the 2022 CREW Network Convention, Sept. 21-23 in Chicago, Illinois.
The scholarship program supports future female leaders as they pursue university-level education that will lead to careers in commercial real estate.
