Statement of Purpose
The Raj Reddy Scholars Program at The University of Michigan aims to bring together the hard-working students of Stephen M. Ross School of Business and create a closeknit community, provide financial aid to students who show a passion for learning, and to carry on the legacy of Raj by exemplifying qualities of moral character both in and out of the classroom.
Expectations from the Scholars:
Freshman and Sophomore Year (entry year)
Potential scholarship recipients will be notified of their winning around August/September during the Freshman and Sophomore year. Once gifted/notified, these students will be asked to become a part of the Raj Reddy Scholars Program in a welcome email by Keshava/Bharathi, Tim, and Jake. In the email, we will talk about Raj, his legacy/scholarship, and the goal for the Scholars. At the Scholarship Ceremony at Ross in March, the new recipients, along with all current Scholars will meet for a lunch with the RCF Board (whichever delegates are there) team. After winning, we will create a brief bio with a photo and a quote of the winner on the RCF website and invite the students to the Raj Reddy Scholars Facebook page. Each Freshman and Sophomore recipient will be paired with a Senior mentor who is also part of the program; the mentors-mentees will be paired off by Jake and Tim based on interests and background. (Proposal: Reddy to provide $25 stipend to mentor to take mentee out to lunch)
Expectations from the Freshman and Sophomore Scholars:
During the Summer in between Sophomore and Junior Year, it is expected the rising Junior class of Raj Reddy Scholars will work together to plan two events for the Fall: a social event and a charity event. The social event will receive a stipend of $--- from the Raj Reddy Foundation and will be used to have a welcome back event for the Scholars where they will talk about summers, internships, jobs, help, etc. The charity event will be coordinated with a Detroit/AA charity program to perform a day of service where all members will participate. Throughout the Junior Year, the Scholars will be focusing on academics and internships. It is our hope that the Scholars will be working closely with alumni and seniors for help with these two initiatives.
Expectations from the Junior Scholars:
The Senior class will be in charge of coordinating a charity event and a social event. They will also be the leaders of the non-alumni scholars and be a valuable resource to younger members. As the most experienced of the Scholars, the Senior class is expected to help the Juniors with recruiting techniques/resume preparation/etc., as well as become formal mentors for the new Sophomore class.
Expectations from the Senior Scholars:
Scholar Program Alumni
As an alumni of the Raj Reddy Scholars Program, we hope you to stay in touch and become a resource for the current Reddy Scholars - much in the same way the Alumni did for you! We understand that you will be out in the workforce or attending grad school, but we expect you will be in touch and try to make it to one of the planned events, stay active with the group/offer help when needed, help promote the scholarship to potential candidates, and show the world what being a Raj Reddy Scholar is all about.
