The Philadelphia real estate Council fellowship grant is an offer designed for students of real estate and related fields to explore an area of interest within the real estate market of the Mid-Atlantic region, publish their research through the Philadelphia Real Estate Council, and get paid for their work. The council is seeking students of real estate and related fields to apply for this fellowship by submitting a brief proposal (2-3 pages) for a subject of study, including why the student thinks this topic is important and a tentative research plan.
The real estate students or related field of study selected for a Mid-Atlantic Real Estate Fellowship will work directly with Philadelphia real estate council’s Director of Research to conduct a thorough study of this area of inquiry, then write a professional-quality, thoroughly researched and documented white paper addressing a challenge and proposing a solution. The opportunity to incorporate this research into an independent study with a member of the program’s faculty is available at the discretion of the student’s program.
