The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is an organization for promoting diversity and inclusion in American business. Through an annual competition, The Consortium awards merit-based, full-tuition fellowships to a diverse group of US candidates. In 2005 The Consortium’s mission evolved to include, as applicants, all U.S. citizens and permanent residents who can demonstrate a commitment to The Consortium’s mission. All applicants, regardless of race or ethnicity, must be able to demonstrate this commitment.
Member Universities include:
Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper School of Business

The 2007 application is not yet posted (it will be posted in the Fall), but another benefit of applying through The Consortium is that it reduces the application load. There is usually one central Consortium application, with an additional brief essay for each school. If Consortium member schools are on your list and you fill The Consortium requirement, this is a great one to keep in mind.
