Hi All

I have received the Forte Fellow title from a top school. What are the true benefits of the Forte Fellow title (outside of what the website states)? How helpful is this for international women candidates, in terms of acquiring internships and jobs?

I am a Forte member (through my employer), and I know that the Forte membership isn't very exclusive. Is there any distinct advantage that Forte Fellows gain over their counterparts?

Thanks for the link. However, I've already looked at it and haven't been able to find any recent insights on this. I even reached out to a few recent Forte Fellows, but haven't heard back.
I am trying to figure out how the Forte Fellow title has helped international women in their careers.

It's not clear what answer you're looking for, given you've looked on the website. Forte has 3 main selling points- 1) the MBA launch program for applications. I'm assuming you didn't participate in it hence your question. 2) Limited Networking opportunities and 3) Scholarship money.

Most Forte schools provide funding to their fellows. I got CDN 30,000 from my school. In the US it's supposed to be around $40,000. If you didn't receive a scholarship, I'm not sure Forte is of huge benefit. Myself and others who were in the Launch program joined for the application support and the money.

I heard of a few schools in the Forte network that don't give any scholarship (looking at you Haas), which to me is ridiculous. The Forte name is unlikely to get you job interviews. It's the money and the knowledge that is useful.

Thanks Aaliyah537.
I received Forte Fellowship of $20,000. It isn't a considerable amount if you at the tuition fee for US schools.
I'm trying to explore the ancillary networking benefits through Forte. Did you find the Forte network helpful in building your career prospects with the sponsor companies ?

I've been selected Forte Fellow for 2 second tier schools. So far it seems like the benefits include networking opportunities like the women's conference in July. Also in my case, both fellowships come with full rides so I assumed that was the main benefit. Not sure if this is because they are not top tier schools so they offer more??
