Now this is some terrific news!! 🙂
Reliance and Stanford have tied up for  “Reliance Dhirubhai Fellowship programme” under which 5 Indians will get a full ride at Stanford GSB and that’ll cover all the expanses including tuition, travel and living expenses. Other than merit (which of course gets covered in the admission process at Stanford, another important criterion is commitment to return to work in India for at least 2 years. More here

This surely is a great news for me as I’ve always listed Stan as one of my dream schools, but have found it prohibitively expensive. Though the competition for this scholarship is going to be fierce , but still this charges me up to have a shot at my dream school. And in any case, I have my long term plans in India. Hope that’ll help if everything goes right.

With Mukesh Ambani tying up with his half alma-mater (He had to drop out of Stanford GSB due to Dhirubhai’s illness), can we expect the younder Ambani to follow the suite too.. (Anil is an alumnus of Wharton). That’ll be a double bonus for Indians!! 😀

    5 out of 50 finalist eh!!!, thats a 10% selection rate, much better than the average 7% rate of selection otherwise. Moreover, one has the opportunity to play safe in the typical Indian pool of applicants. A real good opportunity to take the candidature ahead.
    around 10 days gone since I applied; another 8 to go. Keeping fingers crossed for now!!!
