National Talent Search Scheme is a flagship activity of the NCERT started in the year 1963. The purpose of the scheme was to identify talented students and nurture their talent.  Talent refers to the potentiality that manifests itself in a high level of performance in one or more specialized areas.  The scheme, therefore, covers areas like Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Management and Law.  It honours and helps talented students by providing financial assistance in the form of a monthly scholarship.  For the courses in Basic Sciences, Social Sciences and Commerce, this assistance is provided up to Ph.D. level.  For professional courses like Engineering, Medicine, Management and Law this assistance is given only up to Post Graduation.  The NCERT conducts the National Talent Search Examination for students studying in Class VIII only.
