National Campus to Business Leadership Conference & Women of Color Symposium Application Process

Applications for our Spring 2021 event are no longer being accepted. Check back soon for details on our Fall 2021 events for undergraduate women.

The Forté National Campus to Business Leadership Conference and pre-conference Symposium for Women of Color is a premier virtual event for undergraduate women who want to discover how their major can advance them into a successful career as a business leader.

Eligibility Requirements

Undergraduate women from diverse academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. This includes:

  • First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors
  • Students from ANY major
  • Currently enrolled students at any college or university including students at Forté undergraduate partner schools

For the pre-conference Women of Color Symposium we will be extending invitations to admitted undergraduate African American/Black, Latinx, and Native American students.

To be considered for the Conference and Symposium, applicants must have a strong undergraduate academic record and proven leadership experience reflected in their resumes.


There is no application fee. Admitted students from Forté undergraduate partner schools will be asked to submit a $25 refundable deposit to save their seat. This deposit will be refunded in full after the student attends at least one session of the conference.  Admitted students who are not from a partner school will be asked to pay a $99 fee to attend. Students demonstrating financial need are eligible for a deposit or fee waiver upon request.
