Roosevelt University’s Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate (MBIRE) recently announced several significant scholarship funds and internship initiatives for its students.
MBIRE will guarantee a summer internship for all rising senior real estate majors at the university with a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average. The program will also work with rising juniors declared as real estate majors.
The scholarship funds include the new Louis and Ruth Kahnweiler Scholarship Fund established with a $1-million donation. Additionally, scholarships were expanded from three existing programs: The Duke DREAM Fund, McCaffery Interests Inc. Fund, and the Northern Builders Future Leaders in Industrial Real Estate Fund.
Also announced at MBIRE’s 18th annual Real Estate Gala was a $500,000 grant from The Bennett Family Foundation in honor of the late Marshall Bennett. “We are grateful for the generosity, support and engagement of these leading companies and their leadership,” said Collete English Dixon, executive director, MBIRE.
