Announcing ULI Atlanta’s Etkin Scholars for 2022 – 2023!
For a second year, ULI Atlanta will administer the Etkin Scholar’s program for 2022 – 2023. Last year, ULI Atlanta was one of five district councils to pilot the ULI Etkin Scholar Program designed to introduce college and university students with a real estate interest and degree focus to the resources available through ULI membership while integrating those students into the ULI path of learning. The program has expanded this year to eight cities.
The Etkin Scholars program is seven (7) months long and will run from November 2022 through June 2023. During this time, scholars will be required to:
- Spend an average of three hours monthly on ULI activities, in-person or online;
- Attend two ULI National Etkin Scholars virtual events;
- Attend four ULI Atlanta Scholars events in person;
- Access to Foundations of Real Estate Certification program at your own pace online at ULI Learning (details coming later this fall/winter)
The overall goal of this program is to bring the scholar into the world of land use and commercial real estate development – to educate and connect them with the many fields, leaders, and limitless opportunities of this industry. The Atlanta Scholars will have the opportunity to tour projects, meet local leaders and learn about career options and attend events on industry trends and challenges.
Between the two program years, students represented in Atlanta have come from Atlanta Technical College, Emory University, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State and Morehouse College. We are excited to announce the class for the 2022 – 2023 year below:
