Each year, the CREWBaltimore Chapter selects one student amongst many applicants as the recipient of the CREW Baltimore Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a strong female student who is pursuing a career in commercial real estate while also enhancing their education.
We are delighted to announce this year’s recipient, Megan Welch! Megan is a student at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School’s Edward St. John Real Estate Program. We had a chance to connect with Megan and learn more about her past achievements and her hopes for the future in her Real Estate career.
After graduating Cum Laude from the University of Denver with a focus in Business Administration: Hospitality Management and International Business, Megan began her career working with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. Megan had many major achievements with Kimpton. She was a strong asset to their team, and facilitated the opening of 22 hotels in the US, Canada and the Caribbean. After four successful years with the company, Megan realized that although she loved the industry, she was ready to transition back to a student role and continue her education in real estate.
At the Carey Business School, Megan is working to receive her Master of Science in Real Estate Development and Infrastructure, and is set to graduate in August of 2020. Megan is interested in diving deeper into the development world, noting that development touches so many areas aside from construction which makes it attractive to her. Being one of nine females in the class, the only non-international female, and a member of the Real Estate Club, Megan is also working on a team for a local case study competition.
Megan is looking forward to attending one of our events in the coming months, and is eager to learn more about the opportunities CREWBaltimore has available to women in our area. Megan has a bright future ahead of her in the CRE World, and we couldn’t be happier to award her this year’s student scholarship!
