Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - HTMETRO -

For the eighth year in a row, we rolled out a schol­ar­ship pro­gramme to re­ward 50 of Mum­bai’s bright­est young minds. From schools across the city, 10 stu­dents each from Class 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 were cho­sen based on all-round as­sess­ment of aca­demics, ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, com­mu­nity ser­vice and an es­say. The fi­nal 50 win­ners were cho­sen af­ter an in­ter­view with HT edi­tors. Each of these win­ners re­ceived ₹50,000 for their ed­u­ca­tion. The pro­gramme en­gaged with more than 250 schools and re­ceived 81,000 ap­pli­ca­tions. The process cul­mi­nated with an awards func­tion, where par­ents and friends of win­ners turned up to cheer for them.
