The Reaching Out LGBT+ MBA Fellowship was created as a joint effort between top business school programs and Reaching Out to demonstrate that business schools are the top destination to develop the out LGBT+ and active ally business leaders of tomorrow. 

The LGBT+ MBA Fellowship recipients each receive a minimum of $20,000 total scholarship* and access to exclusive mentorship and leadership development programming through Reaching Out. The Class of 2021 will collectively receive over $2M each year of their MBA experience!

Join us and admissions officers and students from these schools and more at the LGBT+ MBA Admissions Summit alongside the ROMBA Conference taking place virtually in October. 

*Fellowship awards may vary at institutions offering need-based financial aid. Please reach out to individual schools for more information

  • Express interest in business schools' on-campus LGBT+ Clubs (we can help connect you)

  • Share your LGBT+ leadership experiences in your application essays

Each participating school is responsible for identifying and selecting its Reaching Out LGBT+ Fellows, so there is no general application for the Fellowship.

  • Serve as an ambassador to the LGBT+ community on campus

  • Help admissions identify future candidates for the Fellowship

  • Take an active role on campus with LGBT+ initiatives

  • To the extent you are interested, be a leader at a Reaching Out event, such as the ROMBA Conference
