Navy Yard, Governors Island Launch Real Estate Fellowship Program

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation and the Trust for Governors Island are launching a new fellowship program dedicated to helping CUNY students from diverse backgrounds gain the professional skills needed for successful careers in the real estate industry and related fields.   

Together, the Navy Yard and the Trust will host 8-10 CUNY undergraduate and graduate students during the 2021-2022 school year. Upon completing the program, fellows will be helped to secure and succeed in interviews that will allow them to obtain quality employment in a real estate-related field. 

“Creating opportunities for New Yorkers at all skill levels to secure good, high quality jobs is our guiding mission, and we are proud to introduce a pipeline dedicated to helping underserved CUNY students land successful careers in the historically tough-to-break-into real estate industry,” said David Ehrenberg, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation.
