Your kids could get a free education from one of the best universities in the country, as long as they come back home.

A new program pays tuition to Stanford Business School, as long as students move to the Midwest after they graduate. The fellowship will pay three students about $160,000 over two years to attend the university. Within two years of graduating, students are required to find work in one of 12 states in teh Midwest.
