Kindly note that while we value & respect academic excellence & believe that it strongly reflects the ability of a person to work hard & excel, our assessment goes much beyond this metric & evaluates our potential members on ALL the above said parameters to arrive at a decision of offering them our Scholarship.

The goal of the program is to select a group of highly talented, ambitious members & facilitate their strategic mentorship to evolve them on the fast track to excellence in their areas of passion & focus, by catalyzing their structured growth.

Given this goal, we believe that our assessment should not be just on past track record, but at least equally, if not more, on future potential, as potential program participants are young minds with a great advantage of time / youth on their side & hence can achieve literally anything, if given the right guidance, mentorship & support.

LeaderClasses looks forward to providing this fresh approach to building awesome leaders.
