MBA Student Brittany (Mari) Landgrebe is the recipient of the American Association of Women (AAUW) Selected Professions Fellowship that supports women in fields of study where they traditionally have been underrepresented. Fellowships for MBA programs are restricted to women of color and are available for the second year of study only.
Landgrebe was awarded $18,000, which can be used to pay for educational expenses (tuition and fees, books, etc.), living expenses, and conference travel. Landgrebe is in the video games industry and her application attested to her desire to diversify gaming.
Only 24 awards are given nationally each year, and Landgrebe's award marks the first time a graduate student from Texas State has received a selected Professions Fellowship - in any field of study
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled full-time in an eligible program of study in which women are underrepresented. AAUW awards Selected Professions Fellowships to women who have achieved high standards of academic excellence and show promise of distinction in their respective fields. Priority is given to women who do not already hold a master's or first professional degree.
