October 17, 2022

NAHRO and award-winning multi-family housing developer LDG Development are pleased to announce this year’s NAHRO-LDG Scholar cohort. The NAHRO-LDG Scholars program is a 10-year venture that provides $1 million in scholarships and internship opportunities to low-income students from around the country. Students also receive networking opportunities with housing professionals from NAHRO member agencies nationwide.  

“LDG is proud to once again provide scholarships to deserving students living in public housing,” Chris Dischinger, co-founder and co-principal of LDG Development, said.  “We recognize the important role a college education can play in changing the trajectory of one’s life and look forward to continuing to support these students as they work towards accomplishing their goal of earning a college degree.” 

This year’s cohort includes:  

  • Vic’Neisha Lovett, University of New Haven, majoring in Forensic Science 
  • Roz Al Janabi, Boise State University, majoring in Biology  
  • Toni Stewart, Minnesota State College, majoring in Business Management 

Eligible students must reside in HUD-assisted affordable housing administered by NAHRO member agencies, who submit applications on their behalf. The NAHRO-LDG Scholars were chosen from the other regional winners of the NAHRO National Merit College Scholarship. 

“As housers and community builders, NAHRO members know that educational assistance and internship opportunities help set up our youth for success,” NAHRO CEO Mark Thiele said. “Congratulations to this year’s scholars and our deep appreciation to LDG for their continued generous sponsorship of this program.” 
Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, LDG has developed almost 10,000 units for families and seniors across eight states. The company was founded about 25 years ago based on the belief that everyone deserves a quality place to live. NAHRO is a national organization of affordable housing and community development professionals and industry partners, whose members provide housing to more than 8 million people.
