Exposing Diverse Students to Top Universities & Career Opportunities in Commercial Real Estate
June – July 2022
The REEX JumpStart Scholars in Commercial Real Estate is a 2-week residential program that will focus on developing a pipeline of high achieving, diverse students (current high school juniors) by providing exposure to the following:
REEX JumpStart will culminate with a capstone project competition in which top students will apply the skills they have learned to a real-world case study.
2022 University Partners include:
Harvard University / MIT, Howard University, University of Miami, NYU / Cornell University
To introduce students of color to the commercial real estate industry in a university setting, provide them with the knowledge, networks, and opportunities to build generational wealth, and introduce them to careers with high-earning potential in commercial real estate.
REEX JUMPSTART provides a road map for diverse students to achieve financial independence and generational wealth. In addition, scholars will be exposed to top-tier universities and faculty/admissions officers providing College-level instruction, mentorship, industry professionals, and internship opportunities.
We cannot guarantee placement at any specific university campus, but the admissions committee will consider the applicant’s preferences, in addition to several other factors that we have deemed important in maximizing the scholar’s overall experience
REEX JumpStart will require all participating students to be vaccinated and/or have taken the booster. Unfortunately, COVID is still with us. We need to take precautions to ensure that we can continue to have an opportunity to make the most of our 2022 Summer Session. We want to also take this opportunity to emphasize that our host institutions have strict protocols and guidelines for the health and safety of all students and faculty.
No prior knowledge of real estate is required to apply or participate.
“Thank you to the REEX program and the Cornell Cohort for allowing me the great opportunity to represent the Cornell Scholars in my remarks. As I said yesterday, I am so grateful to my LEAD and REEX colleagues and the community we have joined. A huge shout out to all of the sponsors, speakers, and REEC.”
“What a wonderful experience for our son Khari. It offered him additional insights to study and career considerations that he otherwise may never have experienced. Thank you so much and I will forever be an advocate for the work you are doing with REEX/LEAD, pushing as many kids as I can your way. ”
