Below are some scholarships for women.

Forte Fellowship
The Forte Fellows Program is a women-specific scholarship program to help the female candidates to fund their MBA program – full-time, part-time, or executive. The fellowship can be availed if you get admitted at one of the 50 participating business school (sponsor business schools). All those MBA programs are among best in the world and include names like Harvard, Wharton, Yale, Kellogg, London Business School, INSEAD, HEC Paris, MIT-Sloan etc. You can find the full list here.

Candidates should demonstrate exemplary leadership qualities, commitment to women (and girls) empowerment through community involvement and/or personal mentorship. Besides, candidates must also have an excellent academic track record, accomplished career history, and visionary career goals.



The fellowship is open to female candidates from all nationalities. The amount of award varies from institute to institute and covers approximately 50% of the tuition fees.
