Past Fellowships and Scholarships
Below is a list of fellowships and scholarships that have been offered by the Center for Real Estate in years past.
The Heather Smith Memorial Fellowship
The Heather Smith Memorial Fellowship honors the memory of Heather Smith, a member of the Boston real estate community who was aboard American Airlines Flight 11 on September 11, 2001.
Typically awarded annually, the Fellowship is presented to female students at the MIT Center for Real Estate based on financial need, career objectives, and academic standing. To date, well over $100,000 has been awarded, and recipients have gone on to work for prestigious real estate firms and investment banks that include Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, and Forest City Ratner.
The Fellowship was created by Heather’s family, friends, and real estate associates to provide “a living legacy and a message of hope” in tribute to Ms. Smith by helping women in financial need who show exceptional promise. Awards are presented each year at a benefit for the Heather Smith Foundation.
