About Read to Lead Program
What is Times SPARK?
Times SPARK is a scholarship under READ TO LEAD programme. SPARK stands for Scholarship Programme for Awareness Responsibility and Knowledge
This is an endeavour to encourage school students of class IX to XII to develop a reading habit that helps them understand about our society and environment, so that they can go on to write the future
How does it work?
The Time of India will carry ONE article per day across a range of fields like current affairs, science and technology, sport, politics, social issues, global developments etc
Over a span of 3 months, these articles will provide multi-dimensional perspectives to help you get a deeper understanding of various interesting subjects
At the end, there would be an online test followed by an interview to assess your understanding and perspectives
After the fine assessment at the end of 3 months, up to 400 students will get an education grant ranging from Rs.1 lakh to Rs.2 lakhs
For the top 20, Bennett University will organize a special orientation program with its partner institutions – Cornell and Georgia Tech
The top 5 school of each city based on the number of their students enrolled for the program, will get featured in The Time of India
