SquareFoot Scholarship

This scholarship is sponsored by the company SquareFoot, which is a marketplace that connects people with the office space they deserve. We do this by bringing technology and transparency to an industry that has historically had neither. Founded in Houston and now based in Manhattan, SquareFoot operates throughout the country, helping businesses of all sizes find office space in New York City, Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and everywhere between. The SquareFoot Scholarship is a way for our team to support students passionate about real estate, technology, and entrepreneurship. Our application is open to current, first, second, and third-year students attending an accredited higher education institution in the U.S.
