The Reliance Dhirubhai Fellowship was established in 2008 to support promising Indian students with financial need who earn admission to the Stanford MBA Program based on merit, and who are committed to contributing to the development of India post education.

One of the 5 selected for this prestigious Fellowship is a BITSian girl of 2000 batch - Aditi Pany.

Aditi Pany was the first woman elected president of the Students’ Union at Birla Institute of Technology and Science, where she completed both a bachelor of engineering degree in electrical and electronics, and a Master of Science degree in economics in 2005.

As president, she launched several new initiatives, including the formation of the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership. Based in New Delhi, Pany began her career at the social enterprise TARAhaat, developing IT-enabled services—such as skills development programs—for rural communities.

Currently a program associate at Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, she facilitates business-social partnerships to provide housing and healthcare to low-income communities. She credits her upbringing and experiences in Bhubaneswar in the coastal state of Orissa, home to some of India’s finest artisans, for her aspiration to promote India’s rich tradition of handlooms and handicrafts that are intricately linked with its diverse culture, people, and natural environment.
