Castle Lanterra Properties (CLP), a New York-based national real estate investment firm, has awarded four new scholarships to residents at several of its properties across the country that are enrolling in undergraduate or graduate programs. The respected multifamily owner established the scholarship program five years ago to assist active residents and their dependent children at CLP properties who enroll to an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the upcoming school year.
Through its scholarship program, CLP has awarded 20 residents with scholarships totaling $40,000. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, or national origin.
“Academic philanthropic initiatives are an important piece of CLP’s mission as we strive to create a sense community at each of our properties,” said Elie Rieder, CEO and Founder of CLP. “We are proud that our scholarship program allows us to play a small part in the education of these gifted residents. We wish them the best of luck as they continue with their studies.”
The recipients included Noreen Mathews (University of South Florida), Carley Campbell (Nova Southeastern University: Tampa) and Britney Mathis (University of South Florida) from Vue at Belleair in Tampa, FL; and Samantha Huron (Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi) from Baypoint Apartments in Corpus Christi, TX.
