Resources for Students


The Runstad Department of Real Estate PhD Student Travel Assistance program is intended to provide opportunities for PhD students involved with the department to become familiar with and participate in their academic field by presenting at conferences. The department is able to provide funds thanks to the generosity of donors supporting student services.

Currently, the Runstad Department of Real Estate master’s and bachelor’s students are not supported by this program.
