Wharton Announces New Full-Ride MBA Fellowship for a LGBTQIA+ Student

New funding opportunity available from this fall

The University of Pennsylvania Wharton School has announced the launch of a new full-ride MBA fellowship available to a LGBTQIA+ student. 

The new funding will cover the full cost of tuition for the two-year MBA program (the current cost of tuition is over $80,000 per year.)

The new "Prism Fellowship" was established in 2019 by a Wharton alum and will be awarded annually to one student in the MBA program. This year, it has been awarded to Colan Wang of Toronto, Ontario, who is currently leading a gender inclusion project at TD Wealth. 

A number of business schools across the world have been seeking to increase diversity in their MBA programs by recruiting more LGBTQIA+ students. To do this, many have turned to scholarships, fellowships, and other funding options. See the Top 10 MBA Programs for LGBT+ Students on FIND MBA.
