Frequently Asked Questions
Will FLA be in-person or virtual?
We’re planning for a pre-program webinar and a 1.5-day in-person summit in the spring but are monitoring the COVID situation closely and will adjust to a fully virtual format if needed. Dates will be provided to those selected for the program.
What are the eligibility requirements? Are non-US citizens eligible to participate?
All freshman/first year students, who plans to graduate in winter 2025 or spring/summer 2026, and identify as Black, Hispanic/Latinx or Indigenous (Native American, Alaska Native, Inuit, Métis and First Nations). Non-US citizens are eligible to participate, however, participants must attend university in the United States.
Do I need to have any experience in consulting to participate?
No, you do not need to have any prior background in consulting to have a meaningful experience in the FLA program. We encourage students from all majors and backgrounds to apply.
