Times Scholars 2012

'Times Scholars' is an initiative undertaken by The Times of India to recognize and reward the brightest young minds in the country. We firmly believe in the power of intellect, and thus aim at polishing the young new diamonds of the country which we feel have the potential of once again proving the power of India’s intellect to the World. Like the Indians who gave to the World innumerable intellectual gifts such as the concept of zero, the science of algebra, the technique of algorithm, the mother of all languages Sanskrit, the Ayurveda, the Yoga, the Takshila University, the game of chess and so on, we believe that there are bright young minds out there in the country today, who if guided and mentored well will be the drivers of change and development in the World.

With that thought in mind, we are launching 'Times Scholars'. We invite class 12th students from all over the country to apply for the programme by filling out a simple form on our website. The students will be shortlisted based on information given by them in the form, and the shortlisted candidates will go through the next levels of testing. We have experts supporting us in the initiative who will help us choose the top 20 Times Scholars on the basis of qualities like reasoning ability, aptitude, knowledge, future vision etc.

We will then undertake the task of providing the best of guidance and mentorship to these scholars in their fields of interest, enabling them understand and adopt a thinking-reasoning model of learning that will help them excel in whatever career option they choose for themselves. We will also be giving each of them cash scholarships worth Rs. 5 Lakh, over a period of 4 years of their graduation.

We hope and believe that these young scholars we are equipping today will be the ones making the history of India tomorrow.
