The ICSC Foundation awards over 100 academic scholarships and one professional development fellowship annually.
The ICSC Foundation Canada currently offers three scholarships and is in the process of developing more.
We offer academic scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students studying retail real estate and/or a related curriculum. These scholarships are offered either directly by the ICSC Foundation or ICSC Foundation Canada or in partnerships with select universities or colleges. Awards are based on varying criteria such as academic merit, financial need and diversity.
In order to give students maximum exposure to the industry, many scholarships also include an ICSC mentor and a complimentary trip to an ICSC conference. Our goal is to provide the recipient with multi-level opportunities for growth.
These scholarships are awarded directly to students by the ICSC Foundation and ICSC Foundation Canada.
