In this article,
we outline a simple mathematical model that shows how a community that shares in the cost of an individual’s education, will also share in its value later on. As shown in the figure below, the average success index (a measure defined in the article that accounts for an individual’s personal value and the value of his or her network) of each member of the community increases fastest in a community that shares in the education costs of its newest members.
Note: The model assumes, among other things, that we add 10 fellows a year. For more details, check out this article, where we present this model.
