Encouraging and Supporting the Next Generation of Real Estate Professionals

The NAIOP Chicago University Initiative was created to provide students in either undergraduate or graduate programs unique opportunities to engage with commercial real estate professionals in the Chicago region.  An integral piece of the Initiative is the newly launched University Scholarship Program.

The NAIOP Chicago University Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance, as well as other professional benefits, to qualifying students enrolled in a commercial real estate program at select institutions.

The Scholarship offers access to, and interaction with, real estate professionals not only in the Chicago area, but also nationwide through national and local meetings.  In addition, scholarship winners are included in the competitive NAIOP Chicago Mentorship Program.

Qualifying applicants must be an undergraduate (fulltime) or graduate student (preference given to those enrolled in a minimum of two courses) maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.  The application process includes a personal interview with the Selection Committee comprised of NAIOP Chicago Board Members.  Applications are accepted in the Spring of each year.
