The Providence Real Estate Diversity Scholarship

About Providence Real Estate

Providence Real Estate has over 36 years of history as an owner, operator, manager, and asset manager of multifamily residential communities throughout the United States.

Providence’s goal is to provide an “extraordinary standard of excellence” in everything it does, and it prides itself on having maintained a standard of exceeding expectations by bringing together a team of professionals who share the same values.  Five core values — integrity, the pursuit of excellence, accountability, collaboration, and serving others — drive every aspect of its operations and serve as the foundation of Providence’s culture of inclusion, diversity, equality, and accessibility.

Providence believes that higher education is a critical element in achieving success in the real estate industry.  While no one factor can alone propel a person into the professional real estate ranks, education can provide crucial tools for overcoming adversity to achieve professional goals. We all have a part to play to ensure that every hardworking American has an opportunity to pursue success, and Providence believes that the Providence Real Estate Diversity Scholarship can play a part in more fully extending our collective American dream thus making the world a better place.
