can anyone tell me about scholarship programs for Indian students in foreign universities ? I have heard about Dhirubhai Ambani fellowship program in Stanford GSB for Indian Students that requires mandatory working of 2 years in India.
Anyone know about similar scholarship program specifically for Business schools in US or Canada?

Kindly mention if there is any government program also and the requirement to get into that scholarship program .
