ICSC offers academic scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students studying retail real estate and/or a related curriculum. These scholarships are offered either directly by the ICSC Foundation or ICSC Foundation Canada or in partnerships with select universities or colleges. Awards are based on varying criteria such as academic merit, financial need and diversity. To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must have at least a 3.0 GPA and be a US citizen or permanent resident (or be a Canadian citzen or permanent resident if applying for the Canadian scholarships). In addition, applications should be at least incoming sophomores. Dollar amounts differ by scholarship.
In order to give students maximum exposure to the industry, many scholarships also include an ICSC mentor and a complimentary trip to an ICSC conference. Our goal is to provide the recipient with multi-level opportunities for growth.
