Aspire: a new paid summer internship


Learning, Doing, and Getting Paid!
Sound too good to be true? It’s not!

The College of Built Environments launches Aspire, a new paid summer internship program that offers financial support, mentoring, and skill-building through academic and office settings. The focus for summer 2021 will be the single and multi-family residential real estate market through a partnership with Windermere Real Estate. Interact with industry and academic leaders while learning about the importance of home and homeownership to promote a thriving community.  The program participants will gain skills in financial principles, marketing, intercultural fluency, and leadership. Additionally, interns will work in small teams on a project about homeownership and housing that they will present to industry professionals and have in-depth tours showcasing the range of processes involved with home buying. They will develop leadership, technical, and financial skills needed to provide more access to more people, thereby making a more just, prosperous, and beautiful world. Students from historically underrepresented or marginalized groups, and/or lived experiences with housing insecurity are strongly encouraged to apply.

Aspire is an 8 week, 15 hr per week summer professional development program. Participating students will divide their time between classroom lectures and activities, and a field-based internship with Windermere real estate professionals, which will include tours, professional mentoring, and hands-on project work. Students will be paid during the field-based internship as employees of Windermere real estate and will be awarded an additional $5,000 scholarship for Autumn Quarter 2021 upon successful completion of the program.
