The ICSC Foundation’s professional development scholarships are closing in just over a weeks. It is time to apply for either the John T. Riordan Professional Education Scholarship or the Planigrupo Latin American Fellowship in Honor of Milton Cooper and Dave Henry.
Several of our past scholarship recipients have been kind enough to share their experiences and tell you why you should apply.
Brixmor Property Group
The JTR Scholarship gives you the opportunity to network with retail real estate professionals from across the country, discussing best practices, the business environment for their region, etc. The other students I met at the school in Scottsdale have become lasting relationships, and resources for professional growth.
There is absolutely nothing to lose in applying. It takes a few hours to complete the application, and have the chance to be granted a full expense paid trip to beautiful Scottsdale and Las Vegas to improve your skills, network with like-minded individuals, and add to your professional resume.

As someone who pays attention to all of my business expenses because I am 100% commission and relatively new to the industry, I was on the fence about investing in attending the Leasing II course this year. These courses are worth your time and money, as they are compact with information and industry tips you can’t get from a textbook. It was great to meet other up and coming real estate professionals and swap stories about their markets and companies. I highly recommend this school and plan on attending this year.
Los Bravos Development Group
It’s a great opportunity to learn, to share experiences and to network with high level industry leaders. Don’t miss out!!
Rouse Properties, Inc.
I met and formed relationships with junior and senior industry professionals. I was able to connect with several retailers through the friends that I made at the conference. Great experience! I recommend to all.
The deadline is January 20th for both the JTR Scholarship and the Planigrupo Fellowship. Benefits of both include all expenses paid trip to a John T. Riordan School for Retail Real Estate Professionals and to an award ceremony at RECon.
