A Will to Give

Since David Sloan left the Foreign Service in 1986, his career has primarily focused on India and South Asia. Sloan, A74, F75, helped a range of major corporations enter the Indian market while he was at a boutique consultancy headed by former U.S. Senator Charles Percy. After a visiting fellowship at the Rajiv Gandhi Institute for Contemporary Studies and a long tenure as the Scowcroft Group’s South Asia specialist, he now serves as the Asia practice head for the Eurasia Group, which assesses political risk for leading global investors.

“So many aspects of my life have been influenced by my Fletcher experience,” says Sloan. “Many of my closest friends are also Fletcher grads. I landed my first consulting job through a Fletcher connection. And I’m in touch virtually every day with someone from the school.”

A regular Fletcher School donor, Sloan decided he wanted to make a gift that would leave a lasting impact. Because of his close ties to the region, he is creating a scholarship to support students from India and elsewhere in South Asia. “I want to make sure that students from that critical region are attracted to Fletcher,” he says. The David M. Sloan Endowed Scholarship Fund, which will be established through a bequest in his will, will help contribute to an enduring relationship between Fletcher and Asia.
