In April 2008, Reliance stirred up the imagination amongst Indians, when it agreed to send up to five Indians on a full scholarship to Stanford Graduate School of Business, if selected by the business school. This generous scholarship offered nearly $83,000 to those five chosen to be Reliance Dhirubhai Fellows who are committed to returning to develop India.
Business school has a big party element. However, Fellows have to make sure they don?t get into academic or other troubles, and they?ll keep getting funded. We know that getting into business school is a whole lot harder than getting out.
Good judgement prevailed at Reliance when they were thinking up these scholarships. Fellows don?t need to return right away. They can work for two years anywhere, before they need to return to India. That will give them some much needed exposure.
