I am excited to announce that MIT Sloan is a partner in the new Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship. In addition to a minimum $10,000 scholarship, recipients will take part in Reaching Out events, mentoring, and leadership opportunities. MIT Sloan is proud to be involved in this opportunity for our LGBT students.
MIT is committed to fostering a diverse, supportive, and collaborative environment. One of our students wrote about life at MIT Sloan as an LGBT student, describing how “Sloanies I barely knew wrote to me ‘coming out’ as allies” when she shared her story during a class. The co-presidents of the MIT Sloan LGBT Club also wrote a post detailing the support offered by the LGBT community here, from social gatherings to recruiting events. Students can also tap into a vibrant LGBT presence in Cambridge and Boston. Please feel free to contact the club if you have any questions or are visiting campus. You can also register for our LGBT Ambassadors Day on April 30th, 2015, which is a great way to connect with our community. We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
