SIOR Foundation and SIOR Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter Partner with Texas A&M University

The SIOR Foundation, SIOR Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter, and Texas A&M University have formed an educational partnership providing graduate students $24,000 in scholarship grants. Three $8,000 scholarships will be awarded yearly to students enrolled in the Master of Real Estate program in the Mays Business School at Texas A&M. 

The scholarships were made possible through the Foundation's Matching Scholarships program. The chapter contributed $6,000, matched by the SIOR Foundation for a total contribution of $12,000, and the Mays master of real estate advisory board provided $12,000 in matching funds for a total scholarship fund of $24,000.

Students from UC Berkeley Tour Major Bay Area Real Estate Projects

Forty-seven students from the University of California at Berkeley's Fisher Center for Real Estate and Economics joined SIOR Northern California Chapter members on March 9 for a tour of some of the Bay Area's major real estate projects. The tour took the students through industrial, office, and mixed-use projects, and gave the students access to existing professionals that spanned industrial and office brokers, developers, a major commercial contractor, and an architectural firm. 

The event was sponsored by the SIOR Northern California Chapter, and in part by Chapter Matching grants from the SIOR Foundation. The tour is a follow up to SIOR's first event with the UC Berkeley that featured a "town hall" career development panel with SIORs, developers, and students as panelists. The chapter and Foundation are also sponsoring similar programs and scholarship grants with Sacramento State University.
