Francis Do HeadshotFrancis Do, a junior at University of St. Thomas, recently received the $6,000 SIOR Real Estate Scholarship. This award is made possible thanks to an agreement with the SIOR Minnesota Chapter, the SIOR Foundation and the University of St. Thomas.


“Thank you for making the SIOR Real Estate Scholarship possible. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support. I am a current Junior in the Real Estate program at the University of Saint Thomas with a minor in data analytics. I have been in the real estate industry since junior year of high school starting as a Listing and Sales Coordinator for Edina Realty. From there, my curiosity and passion for this industry grew. Since then, I have gotten my real estate license, had an internship with a local renewable energy developer, Geronimo Energy in managing their real estate data and mapping. Also, I am currently in an internship with Sherman Associates as their SharePoint Specialist, helping them through the transition into SharePoint infrastructure. I plan to explore my options within the real estate industry as finish up my final year at Saint Thomas. I am actively searching for new internships in different sectors of the real estate industry to expand my borders and get a feel
for what I like and dislike. The scholarship you've provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time for studying. As I continue to finish my education at Saint Thomas, I am thankful for receiving this scholarship in which will lighten my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help out other future real estate students. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me!”
