The NRI of the Year Awards for Academics are bestowed upon under-graduate, graduate, post-graduate or doctoral students in recognition of their outstanding academic achievement

These awards are open to all those who have burnt the midnight oil, dog-eared books, struggled with projects and deadlines, but always set things right at the end. What’s new? Well, for starters, we’re democratic and un-elitist and open for all – undergrads, grads, post grads, docs, post docs – if you’ve got academic mettle, walk right in! So, if you are a person who has not only lit the lamp of knowledge brighter but turned it into a sacrosanct halo that awed and inspired, this award awaits you. And no, we’re not only looking at students and scholars who are enrolled in institutions that regularly feature among the world’s top 10. That’s obviously there but we’re not elitist – you’re more than welcome to participate if you belong to less-decorated institutes. The only criteria is you need to be brilliant.

The awards are given to students based on the depth & high quality of their academic achievements, which include college recognitions, departmental recommendations, scholarships and such outstanding academic work beyond that which is mandated by the curriculum or by the institute. We’re not only looking at students and scholars who are enrolled in institutions that regularly feature only among the world’s best. The awards are for all individuals who have excelled in scholarship and by demonstrating virtues of leadership have extended their intellectual abilities beyond the classroom.
