We are thrilled to announce that UCLA Anderson School of Management has joined 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 access to various Reaching Out programming, 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
As a bonus we’re excited to unveil our interview with current out LGBT MBA leaders Tracy Bjelland & Devon Dickau who co-lead Out@Anderson, UCLA Anderson’s on-campus LGBT group. One of their major initiatives is to build a greater pipeline of LGBTQ student – and being part of the LGBT MBA Fellowship is just one of their many initiatives for prospective LGBTQ applicants to UCLA Anderson.
