CKCRE Scholarships

The Childress Klein Center for Real Estate was established with support from the real estate industry and program alumni. Their commitment to supporting our goal to recruit and attract top real estate students seeking comprehensive and interdisciplinary graduate education in commercial real estate studies has led to the development of CKCRE scholarships. Financial contributions from M.S. in Real Estate alumni have supported course development, special events as well as the following scholarships for incoming graduate students.  

The Real Estate Alumni Scholarship (REAA) Ambassador is given by the Real Estate Alumni Association (REAA) at UNC Charlotte to expand the professional opportunities available to the alumni and students of UNC Charlotte through its networking, mentoring, fundraising and advocacy. This annual scholarship provides $3,000 to a student who works with the REAA Board to facilitate communication between and among current students and real estate alumni, with preference given to second-year students.

The KDJ Foundation Scholarship is given by alumni Kory Jeter '15, along with Shawn Kimble '07 and real estate property manager Antoine Dennard, who created the scholarship after seeing a need for more diversity in the industry. This annual scholarship provides approximately $500 to one student pursuing a Masters of Science in Real Estate degree or Masters of Business Administration degree with a real estate concentration who is interested in a career in commercial real estate. Preference is given to underrepresented populations.

The UNC Charlotte Belk College of Business is committed to our community, including future students. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the M.S. in Real Estate program has waived the GMAT/GRE test requirement for Spring, Summer and Fall 2021 admissions.
