WX is excited to announce the WX Scholars Program recipients for the 2016-2017 program year. This year, the WX Charitable Fund is making a total of 23 awards, comprising seven merit awards and 16 financial scholarships, totaling $124,500. The WX Scholars Program encourages and supports bright and talented young women pursuing challenging careers in real estate and related professions in the New York metropolitan area. The awards, which are based on merit and financial need, are given to women graduating from undergraduate or graduate degree programs and entering the real estate industry in New York City. Among the many benefits of the program, the Scholars are invited to participate in the WX Mentoring Program for two years, which provides educational programming and networking opportunities to the women as they launch their careers. Since the program was launched in 2004, scholarships have been awarded to over 200 women at 14 schools, totaling approximately $1 million dollars.
