Mortgage Bankers of NY Reactivates Scholarship Program
The Mortgage Bankers Association of New York (MBAofNY) has named the recipients of the association’s 2018 Scholarships. The MBAofNY Scholarship Foundation was reactivated earlier this year, after a 10-year hiatus to support students pursuing a degree in real estate in New York City institutions of higher education.
The recipients were as follows:
– From New York University – Schack Institute of Real Estate: Dushyant Ravichandran and William D’Avella.
– From Cornell University – Baker School of Real Estate: Emile Schacter (pictured).
– From Fordham University – Real Estate Institute: Marc Kunesch.
Kunesch was the recipient of the inaugural Michael B. Fletcher Scholarship, named in honor of an MBAofNY past president and Fordham University alumnus.
Scholarship Foundation chairman Richard Carr led a team “that developed an entirely new vision for the Scholarship Foundation, and accomplished so much in only a few short months.” Carr also founded the MBAofNY’s Mentor 360 Program, created in 2013.
