About the Helfland-Bluhm Fellowship through Zell/Lurie

Possessing more than two decades of industry experience, Joyce Storm is a respected real estate investment professional and the president of Storm Partners, a New York-based company that specializes in revitalizing retail properties. Additionally, Joyce Storm is a founding member of the Zell/Lurie Real Estate Center at the Wharton School of Business, where she also serves as a member of the advisory board.

The Zell/Lurie Real Estate Center offers a fellowship to help applicants with some career search costs. The funding is made possible through contributions from David Helfland and Leslie Bluhm, and can be used to cover costs incurred for travel, attendance at professional conferences, job interviews, and other expenses. All funding is provided on a reimbursement basis, which means the applicant must pay the expenses up front.

In order to be eligible, applicants need to demonstrate a legitimate financial need that would prevent them from being able to take part in a career search opportunity. They must also be full-time students at the Wharton School of Business and belong to a club that is officially sponsored by Zell/Lurie. For more information on the fellowship, visit
