TIMES Scholarships 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.
