All the best everyone! Did anyone apply to the Reliance India or the Africa fellowship?


I think they've changed the application process to the Africa Fellowship. Now you only indicate in the MBA application ( Round 1 or 2) that you're applying to the Africa Fellowship to be considered. ( Of course, you have to submit an additional essay )

What factors they consider when awarding these scholarships? Are they purely merit based?

I have a question ( might sound silly but please provide an answer for this )

1.- if I near the end of the deadline will my application be viewed at the end?

2. Is it that the sooner you apply the sooner you get to know if you're in or not?

3. Does the evaluation by the college start after the deadline?

4. If I apply near the end of the deadline mentioned will my chances decrease? I mean will the ppl who have applied before me have a greater probability of getting chosen? What if the students who have applied before me let's say 100 and the strength of the class is 60 and all the 60 seats are filled by the 100 ppl who have applied before me get the seat . Will I have no chance? I mean is it first come first serve?

No, those are not true. What you are talking about is in the case of rolling admissions, as in the case of Columbia.

Applying earlier gives you no advantage - everybody who applies in a given round is evaluated in parallel, after the deadline ends.

Hi all -- I'm looking forward to sharing advice and thoughts on this forum once the essays are released. My advice in the meantime would be to start thinking about what makes you tick and what you are most passionate about (and how you can "prove" that through past actions). Even if Stanford decided to change its long-standing "What matters most and why?" essay, I still believe they would ask something fairly personal and introspective. People struggle with this essay, so the more time you can spend really noodling on it, the better.
