Schulich MBA welcomes diversity, equity and inclusion fellowship recipients

York University's Schulich School of Business has announced two new fellowship opportunities: Access to Success and Reaching Out MBA.

The Access to Success Organization is a not-for-profit that supports the development of future leaders with disabilities. This merit-based fellowship celebrates outstanding students who have demonstrated excellence in academic, professional or extracurricular areas.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Schulich School of Business as the latest business school to launch the Access to Success Fellowship,” said Varun Chandak, president of the Access to Success Organization. “We applaud Schulich’s commitment to disability inclusion and are looking forward to working with them to build a pipeline of future leaders with disabilities.”

The mission of Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) is to increase the influence of the LGBTQ+ community in business by educating, inspiring, and connecting MBA students and alumni. As a ROMBA partner school, Schulich is planning to award up to two fellowships to eligible incoming MBA students. Each Fellow will receive a minimum $20,000 scholarship and access to exclusive leadership programming.

“Building upon Schulich’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, we look forward to welcoming our first fellowship recipients to the MBA program this fall and are excited to see the contributions they will make to the Schulich community,” said Hollis Sinker, executive director of Student Services & International Relations at Schulich.

In addition to Access to Success and Reaching Out MBA, Schulich remains a proud Forté Foundation partner school.

The Forté Foundation is a non-profit consortium of leading companies and top business schools working together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities and a community of successful women. In partnership with the Forté Foundation, Schulich provides support to women applying for and enrolling in their MBA through entrance awards, fellowships, professional development and networking events. Selected Forté Fellows join an exclusive group of women that represent 54 leading business schools in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

To be considered for any of these fellowships, applicants must submit an MBA application for the September intake and indicate interest in being considered as a Fellow for one of these organizations to an admissions officer.
