An innovative pilot internship program aimed at advancing diversity in the commercial real estate industry is on track to launch its first cohort of students into paid 10-week learning and mentoring opportunities this summer at some of the nation’s leading REITs.

Known as Foundations: REITs and Commercial Real Estate Internship Program, the program is a joint initiative of Nareit, ULI, and Fannie Mae’s Future Housing Leaders (FHL). Students were selected for the Foundations program in early 2022 and are now completing ULI’s 30-hour, comprehensive introduction to commercial real estate certification.
