Mastering the metropolis through research and thought leadership.

The Helfand/Bluhm Career Support Fellowship*

*Made possible by the David Helfand, PAR ’20 and Leslie Bluhm, PAR ’20 Zell/Lurie Real Estate Fund.

PURPOSE 

The David Helfand, PAR ’20 and Leslie Bluhm, PAR ’20 Zell/Lurie Real Estate Fund was created in 2019 from a generous gift by David Helfand and Leslie Bluhm. With this gift the Zell/Lurie Real Estate Center created the Helfand/Bluhm Career Support Fellowship Program. The fellowship program will distribute individual grants to students with financial need to help defray the cost of qualified expenses for real estate career search activities including travel, networking, interviews, conferences, and other related concerns. 

FUNDING 

Below are maximum reimbursable amounts by region. This is the maximum award you can receive per trip.  Students can only be reimbursed for travel taken during the current academic year.

You can only submit one application per trip. Please do not combine expenses from multiple trips into one application. If you are making reoccurring trips to one destination we still require that each trip is reimbursed separately.
