Hi Zoinnk,

Good thread idea! Kudos :)

I'm curious where you found the Deutsche Bank MBA Fellowship pdf from? From my google research, I can see that it was only started last year and they issued a 7 page pdf. Your attachment for this year's program was only 1 page... can you tell me where you got it? Hopefully that'll lead me to the rest of it or more info. Thanks!!

The profiles of past recipients of the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships are ridiculous!

Here's another one, open to nationals of the 22 countries that make up the Arab League, and sponsored by the Mohammed Bin Rashid (ruler of Dubai) foundation:

http://www.mbrfoundation.ae/English/Kno ... llows.aspx

It's a full ride (including stipends) and requires a two year commitment to work in the Arab World immediately after graduation. It's for MBA, MiF, and MPA (and possibly other related degrees). There are select partner schools with the program. In the US, these include Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Chicago, Duke, NYU, Haas, Yale.

Haas has a pretty lengthy list of scholarships. Some of these are for Haas students only but most seem to be open to everyone.
