The Hindustan Times Scholarship programme is a unique endeavour. It seeks to recognise and reward the brightest young minds. And it seeks to do so in a manner that transcends the conventional means of rewarding a child by assessing her academic performance. This programme, one of the several initiatives by HT in the field of education was launched in 2010 in Mumbai. Over the years, more than 4 lakh students have participated in the program from 250+ schools.

When we rolled out the inaugural programme in 2010 in Mumbai, we had not anticipated the overwhelming response we were to receive. We got more than 27,000 applications. In 2018-19, we got 78,000 students from 280 schools. After we expanded the programme to Pune and Chandigarh, we had more than 132,000 registrations.

What sets apart this initiative from other programmes is the selection process. In addition to the academics, a student’s creativity, originality and extracurricular interests are also taken into account. The initiative as a whole helps students to come forward and realise their hidden talent.

Many celebrities like Shabana Azmi, Preeti Zinta, Rajkumar Hirani, Rohit Shetty, Leander Paes, Huma Qureshi, Kajol, Imran Khan, Ayushman Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput have shown their support and been a part of this unique initiative.

This year we are back again to reward 150 students with scholarships worth Rs. 50 lakhs. It isn’t just the money, of course. The award means a great deal for each of the deserving children; it makes a big difference to their lives.

This year, the Hindustan Times Scholarship programme will again be rolled out in Mumbai, Pune and Chandigarh.
