Master of Real Estate Development students Jarrid Williams, David Moore and Riddhima Sabharwal have been accepted into the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Etkin Scholars Program, a highly selective, year-long program to cultivate future leaders in urban development and land use. Made possible by Bruce Etkin of Etkin Johnson Real Estate Partners, the scholarship identifies a small national cohort each year for the Scholars Program; they are three of 15 students accepted to the 2021-22 class.
“This is an incredible opportunity for Jarrid, David and Riddhima,” said Real Estate Program Director Maria Day-Marshall. “ULI has a longstanding reputation for fostering a thriving, sustainable built environment and the next generation of stewards. The Etkin Scholars Program is an outstanding example of the type of professional development that compliments what our students are learning through UMD’s Master of Real Estate Development program.”
The ULI Etkin Scholars Program introduces college and university students to the resources available through ULI membership and seeks to integrate those students into the ULI path of learning. Through this program, ULI District Councils identifies a cohort of graduate and undergraduate students and provide them with a welcoming and concrete entrée into ULI knowledge at the local and national levels with funding support, free ULI student membership, creative programming, networking, and learning opportunities throughout the academic year of their scholarship.
