Receiving the Property Education Foundation scholarship was very significant to me. In the latter stages of my high schooling, I grew an interest for property and economics. When I found out that I had received the award, I was sure that this would be the first big step in entering the property sector. The monetary value of the scholarship has assisted immensely in my living and rent expenses, and I’m not sure how I would have coped without the help of the scholarship! I am very grateful for the opportunity that PEF has given me, and am looking forward to utilise their assistance as much as possible.

James Daw
2019 Scholarship Recipient

Property Education Foundation is always providing opportunities to experience the industry and meet professionals. Most notably, on winter breaks I have been set-up with work experience at Development WA (Landcorp at the time) and Savills. These week/two week internships have given me a great insight into the two main components of my degree (being development and valuation as the name suggests). Seeing how what I learn in the classroom translates to the real world is really important in making sense of it all. It also gives you a preview of what’s to come should you decide to work in the industry you’re interning within.

The financial side of the scholarship has been massively beneficial in allowing me to support myself without spending too much time working. This isn’t the best part of the scholarship though – the opportunities we get as scholarship recipients are worth far more than a cheque in the mail, which is the reason I opted to take the Property Education Foundation (PEF) Scholarship over the Curtin Excellence Scholarship. Invitations to industry events, support from the PEF crew and internship placements are a few examples of non-financial perks that make this scholarship so valuable.

I have been very fortunate to be offered numerous internships through the Property Education Foundation. They have provided me with a variety of different opportunities and roles within the property field. PEF also has invited me to countless networking events and other property related events introducing me to numerous industry professionals allowing me to establish and build upon my own personal network.

2017 Scholarship Recipient

Receiving the Property Education Foundation scholarship has been of great value and help to me. The Foundation has provided me with countless opportunities to network with high level property professionals in the industry and it is these valuable connections that will no doubt help me to secure a rewarding job in the near future. I have also been fortunate enough to receive numerous internships through the Foundations efforts. These internships have provided me with further practical experience within differing property fields in the property industry, along with further extending my industry connections and my employability. I am extremely grateful for the all that the Foundation has done for me and I would strongly recommend the scholarship opportunity to anyone who is considering it. It really has been an invaluable experience for me.

Natasha Bowron
2018 Scholarship Recipient

Beyond the financial assistance provided as being a scholarship recipient, which helped remove a key barrier to studying, I was able to attend industry events that allowed me to meet experienced professionals in the industry, which is invaluable within the tight-knit industry of property, as well as provide insights into the range of different career options available in property.  Property Education Foundation also supported me in acquiring my first job in the property industry, which then assisted in attaining my current role in property development. After graduating, Property Education Foundation continues to support my career growth and provides opportunities to meet and engage with property professionals
