Times Scholars Scholarship

'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.

GATE 2013

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology. The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative performance of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to post-graduate engineering programmes (eg. M.E., M.Tech, direct Ph.D.) in Indian higher education institutes with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Government agencies.  The score may also used by Public sector units for employment screening purposes.

 Financial Assistance

A valid GATE score is essential for obtaining a financial assistance during Masters programmes and in some cases during direct Doctoral programmes in Engineering/Technology/Architechture, and Doctoral programs in relevant branches of Science in an Institution supported by the MHRD or other Government organizations.  To avail the financial assistance (scholarship), the candidate must first secure admission to a programme in these Institutes, by a procedure that could be different for each institute.  Qualification in GATE is also a minimum requirement to apply for various fellowships awarded by many Government organizations.
However, candidates with a Master’s degree in Engineering/Technology/Architecture may seek admission to relevant Doctoral programmes with scholarship/assistantship without appearing in the GATE examination.


GATE is administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordination Board (NCB) – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. The GATE Committee, which comprises of representatives from the administering institutes, is the sole authority for conducting the examination and declaring the results.
GATE is conducted through the constitution of eight zones. The zones and the corresponding administrative institutes are:
The overall coordination and responsibility of conducting GATE 2013 lies with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and is designated as the Organizing Institute for GATE 2013.
