March 10, 2022 (Denton, TX) – The University of North Texas and Christopher Morrow, President of Morrow Hill Commercial Real Estate, are pleased to announce the creation of the Christopher M. Morrow Real Estate Scholarship Fund. Morrow, a 1995 UNT graduate, established the fund to provide two-year scholarships for two real estate students entering their junior year at UNT.
“This gift has long been a dream of mine,” says Chris Morrow. “I paid my own way through college at the University of North Texas, and it was there I developed the business acumen, leadership and grit that got me where I am today.”
The University of North Texas G. Brint Ryan College of Business is the choice of nearly 8,000 students — and ranked fifth in the nation by BachelorsDegreeCenter.org for its real estate program. Since 1961, the college has been continuously accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) — a hallmark of the world’s best business schools.
The $100,000 donation to the G. Brint Ryan College of Business will provide a permanent tradition of empowerment and opportunity for full-time students pursuing a degree in real estate.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Mr. Morrow,” says Jessica Steinke, Assistant Dean of Development for the college. “He is a role model for our students and his support will enable our nationally-ranked real estate program to become more accessible to those striving for academic excellence.”
Scholarships generated from Morrow’s gift will increase the accessibility of an affordable, high-quality education, and provide a lifetime of implications for UNT real estate students.
“There were times in my life when I wanted to drop out of school,” Morrow says. “It was hard to pay for it, and to keep going. But having that piece of paper from UNT makes it all worth it. It’s paved my path to success. Now it’s my time to inspire the next generation of real estate leaders.”
