The Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate at Roosevelt University (MBIRE) on Monday announced the winners of three scholarships awarded to students during the spring 2021 semester, including a newly created scholarship from the Lincoln Park Builders of Chicago. The recipients include two graduate students, Marco Sepulveda and Angela Azmitia, and one undergraduate student, Trace McGuire.
“Over the past year, there’s definitely been a heightened awareness from many highly regarded companies and organizations in recognizing the need for more women and people of color in the commercial real estate field – and that road to success can start with a quality real estate education at MBIRE,” said Collete English Dixon, MBIRE executive director.
The inaugural $5,000 Lincoln Park Builders of Chicago Graduate Scholarship went to Sepulveda, who is pursuing a Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE). The Teresa and Hipolito Roldan Scholarship Fund for Tomorrow’s Hispanic Leaders in Community Development and Real Estate awarded a $5,000 scholarship to Angela Azmitia, a first-year graduate student pursuing an MSRE.
The third scholarship, a $7,500 award from the James and Brenda Grusecki and Northern Builders, Inc., Scholarship for Future Leaders in Real Estate, went to undergraduate student McGuire, a junior majoring in real estate.
