Goldie Initiative Announces Record-Breaking Goldie Scholar Cohort

Goldie Initiative Announces Record-Breaking Scholar Cohort

The Goldie B. Wolfe Miller Women Leaders in Real Estate Initiative, a nonprofit organization designed to prepare women for senior leadership roles in commercial real estate, announced scholarship winners for the upcoming school year.

Since 2007, The Goldie Initiative has created a professional community of women with extraordinary academic and leadership potential, known as Goldie Scholars. With a unique strategy of scholarship, mentoring, networking, and skills development, The Goldie Initiative cultivates talented women into future leaders. The program supports women pursuing graduate-level studies in business, law, design, or management with a focus on real estate.

An unprecedented thirty-four Goldie Scholars representing 17 universities nationally, were selected for a prestigious scholarship program with The Goldie Initiative for the 2023-24 academic year.  Notably, this year’s cohort proudly welcomes four new graduate institutions to its ranks: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, University of Miami, and Iowa State University.
