We are thrilled to announce that The University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management is the 14th MBA program to join the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship, created as a joint effort between top graduate business schools and Reaching Out to demonstrate that business schools & MBA programs are outstanding opportunities for self-identifying and out lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) young professionals and their active allies to build their careers.
Each Fellowship recipient will receive a minimum $10,000 scholarship for each academic year during his/her full-time MBA as well as free access to various Reaching Out programming (including the annual ROMBA conference), mentoring and LGBTQA leadership opportunities, some of which would be developed specifically for these Fellows.
As part of accepting the Fellowship, the students will also agree to take a national leadership role in planning content for at least one Reaching Out initiative during his/her time in business school. Learn more about the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship & Scholarships
We’re thrilled to have Carlson as one of the founding members. Keep an eye out for a few month additions next month!
