Chesapeake Scholars

The Chesapeake Scholars Program was established to provide the opportunity for undergraduate women and students of color to learn about the real estate industry and related careers.

The program offers students opportunities to participate in ABR’s commercial real estate events through several activities, including: 

  • Participation in acquisition team meetings; scholars are invited to attend in person or via videoconference. 
  • Attendance at investment committee meetings, organized to review investment approvals; scholars are invited to attend in person or via videoconference. 
  • Participation in one or more property site visits, with travel costs covered by ABR. 
  • Mentoring by ABR professionals and Wharton MBA students participating in the firm’s in-semester internship for veterans. Students are also invited to “shadow” one or more ABR associates once during the semester.

Colleges and universities are welcome to recommend students to the program. Student participation typically lasts a full semester. The only requirement for the students is to actively participate in the program if selected. 

Interested students should email their college resume to: with subject line Chesapeake Scholars.
