The Forté Fellows Program is a grand effort that offers financial assistance to over 5,000 fellows, totaling to approximately $110 million. This program was established in order to increase the women applying and enrolling to MBA programs, whether the students are pursuing the program full-time, part-time, or even executive.
There are different benefits that the Forté Fellows Program offers. More than just financial assistance, the program also offers life-long connection with Forté Foundation community, participation and networking opportunities from Financial Services FAST Track Conference and Forté MBA Women Leadership Conference. This participation leads to students connecting to school sponsors, and lead executives.
Forté Fellows Program also offers Forté Fellow resume book, Forté Fellow email lists, special access to Forté Fellow section through Forté website and LinkedIn group, Forté free lifetime premium access pass, Fellows and Forté representative mentorship, and Forté outreach program that supports leadership development opportunities.
Being considered in the fellowship, there are several requirements that must be submitted for the MBA application and admission process. Full-time students can benefit from all school grants but only selected schools can offer part-time and executive awards.
If interested in the fellowship, students will be promoted and chosen by the school comprising the fellowship. There is a simple application process that students can follow. First, they can apply for Forté sponsor school and hopefully receive an admission offer from a Forté sponsor. Through the school, students can be selected for the fellowship and notifies Forté for its decision. And when selected, they can open up all scholarship opportunities in the process.
