Students are given a platform to express their thoughts on a given topic which is judged by a panel, followed by an interview at the next level. This year 84,000 applicants from over 220 schools of Mumbai sent in their entries. 150 students were shortlisted, interviewed and finally 50 students across Mumbai were selected for the Scholarship.
