Forté Fellow Conference Stipend Policies

Forté Fellowship recipients in the classes of 2018 and 2019 may be eligible for a $300 conference stipend to support their attendance at the 2017 Forté MBA Women's Conference.

To be eligible, the following criteria must be met:

  1. Forté Fellows must attend the entire conference, starting on Friday, June 16 through Saturday, June 17.
  2. Forté Fellows must be enrolled Fall of 2017 at the Forté Sponsor School awarding their fellowship.

Please note, the conference stipend is intended for those traveling to Seattle for the conference and incurring significant expenses for travel (air travel, hotels, transportation.)

Stipend checks will be issued to eligible Forté Fellows starting in October  2017 after their enrollment is confirmed by their sponsor school in September 2017.

Forté Fellows who select the Saturday only registration fee are not eligible for the conference stipend. The Saturday only option is intended for continuing MBA women students who are on internship and have limited time to attend the entire conference.

As of April 5, 2017, the criteria to stay at the designated conference hotel has been removed. No hotel stay is required.

How do I apply for the stipend?

In late-September, Forté will reach out to fellows that attended conference and ask them to complete an online stipend request form. Questions? Please contact Arrion Rathsack.
