It’s a double announcement today as both Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and Boston University’s Questrom School of Business formally join as a founding school of the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship…and their first fellows will start this coming fall. This now brings the total number of business schools participating in the LGBT MBA Fellowship for the start of fall 2015 to 17 schools!
Both FuquaPride & CohortQ are LGBT MBA Club Affiliates of Reaching Out!
The Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship was 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 Fellow 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 at least one Reaching Out initiative during his/her time in business school. Learn more about the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship & Scholarships
