NDTV has tied up with Airtel to present a reality contest named ‘Airtel Scholar Hunt Destination UK’. The show will be on air from July 14 this year.
'Airtel Scholar Hunt Destination UK' specifically targets students who will complete their Senior Secondary (Class XII) education this April. The reality show to be hosted by Arun Thapar, proposes to select the best from the Indian student community in the country and offer them five scholarships to British universities in subjects as diverse as Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Management, Computing Science, Biomedical Science and Engineering.
The winners will bag scholarships to renowned universities like Cardiff University, Leeds University, Middlesex University, Sheffield University and Warwick University for either a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree. In addition to sponsoring the scholarships and stipend for living expenses, the participating British universities will assist in developing the specifics of the quiz and task rounds, so that the contest questions reflect their exacting admission requirements.
