Mindler, India’s leading career guidance platform has launched the ‘Mindler Scholarship & Talent Hunt’ for Class 12 students across India and the Middle East. With over 50,000 Class 12 students expected to participate, this is a free of cost student first initiative which will see students from 1,000+ schools.
Mindler is bringing this initiative in collaboration with Afairs (one of Asia’s leading education enablers for student-university outreach) and Education World. Basis last year’s trends, Mindler expects to see students participating from each state across the country and the Middle East.
Launched by Bollywood Superstar and Esteemed Thespian Vivek Oberoi, the Mindler Scholarship Hunt has been specially designed to identify and reward the students across various career domains and give them a launchpad to achieve their dreams. Through the hunt, students will be assessed on their unique talents and traits, given a platform to connect and engage with universities around the world, and earn the chance to win scholarships worth over INR 25 crores.
Apart from the 3,000 scholarship offers from participating universities, the Mindler Scholarship & Talent Hunt will also be rewarding the top 10 students with a scholarship offer for any university of choice in India. Additionally, the Mindler Scholarship & Talent Hunt will also help students discover various scholarships and enable them to get comprehensive career profiling using Mindler Talent Evaluation Assessment and discover best-fit career paths based on their unique talents and strengths.
Launching the platform via a Zoom Webinar Vivek Oberoi said “Super excited to hear the exciting and amazing things Mindler is doing and love this idea of scholarships for students where Mindler is creating the bridge for people to get opportunities. When I was studying in New York University getting a scholarship was such a difficult journey and I am glad that Mindler is bringing such amazing opportunities for students.”
During his address Vivek Oberoi encouraged students to leverage this opportunity coming their way but also give back and do their bit for others in whichever way possible. He emphasized that what’s important is the mindset of gratitude, the attitude of gratitude, the art of living, but the art of giving!
Students participating in this initiative will go through a three-step process which includes:
- Step 1: Register for the Mindler Scholarship & Talent Hunt by completing their profile and entering all their achievements during their school days.
- Step 2: Take the Mindler Talent Evaluation Assessment, which evaluates the students’ unique skills and talents.
- Step 3: Express University & Scholarship Preferences to indicate their preferred Career Domains and Universities.
Sharing his views, Prateek Bhargava, Founder & CEO, Mindler said, “After the resounding success of the Mindler Scholarship & Talent Hunt last year we are super excited to create an even bigger impact this year. The current batch of Class 12 students have had a challenging year with lots of ambiguity in this crucial phase of their career decision making journey. Through this initiative will be supporting our students to gain clarity in the face of this adversity and steer them in the right direction. I would like to thank all our University partners who have joined hands with us in this initiative and enabling us to empower students.”
