NSCS and LifeRamp Offer Program to Increase Underrepresented Populations in Careers in Real Estate
WASHINGTON – March 16, 2023
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) and LifeRamp, announced today a new program to provide underrepresented populations a pathway into careers in commercial and/or residential real estate. Known as CORE – Career Opportunities in Real Estate – NSCS and LifeRamp are working together to provide NSCS members at least $500,000 in industry sponsored-scholarships to earn an online credential giving them an advantage in the hiring process.
“We are very excited to tap into the member base of NSCS to reach underrepresented students who are interested in a career in real estate,” said Michael Huckaby, CEO and Founder of LifeRamp. “We’ve already had 54 NSCS members complete the CORE program and currently have 100 more in our current cohort. Given NSCS’s size and history of supporting underrepresented students, this couldn’t be a more perfect fit.”
Students achieving this credential will be prepared for entry level jobs in the real estate industry primarily as a leasing consultant, marketing representative, property administrator. Students will leave with an overview of the industry that will position them for future studies or entry level positions. The program encourages additional exploration through experiential learning such as job shadowing, internships, part time or full-time employment.
“We are always looking for ways to add more value to our lifetime membership offer,” said Stephen Loflin, Founder of NSCS. “Our focus on helping high achieving college students and recent graduates achieve their career goals has never been more important. Working with LifeRamp and CORE helps us meet one of our goals of helping our members continue to achieve at the highest levels.”
