The Reliance Dhirubhai Fellows finalists will bear none of the costs associated with the GMAT exams or Stanford application.

Stanford may select up to five Reliance Dhirubhai Fellows from among the finalists based on its primary admission criteria of:
– Intellectual vitality

  5. Sirs,

    Are there any scholarships provided by RIL for education of chikldren with hearing impairment. my son has passed X th class (CBSE) this year with 80% marks and is planning to pursue Commerce Stream in IXth.

    Such children need one-one coaching in almost all subjects as group claseses will not suit them because of their language disability. The cost of individual tuitions in exhorbitant!!

    Kindly advise.
