About Us

The Jones School Board Fellows Program matches Rice MBA candidates with Houston nonprofit organizations to serve as non-voting board members. Both students and organizations benefit from the Board Fellows program: MBA candidates develop valuable leadership skills and experience working in the nonprofit sector. Organizations gain access to the ideas and energy of future business leaders and establish long-term relationships with the Jones School of Management.

Fellows attend board sessions and relevant committee meetings while completing a strategic project for the organization under the mentorship of a current board member. Board Fellows work with the board to refine and develop the project scope, target key deliverables, conduct necessary analysis, and ultimately prepare recommendations for review.

Program Objectives • Prepare Rice MBA students to be socially responsible leaders through service on non-profit boards. • Support nonprofits by applying Fellows’ professional experiences and academic background to solve strategic, organizational, and operational issues that enhance the work of the board. • Build the Jones School’s reputation of producing socially responsible, community-oriented leaders while making a positive impact on the Houston community.
