RICE Education has been a pioneer in the government job domain for 37 years. It was started by Prof (Dr.) Samit Ray. He noticed that the number of candidates from West Bengal qualifying for competitive examinations was gradually decreasing and hence he took the initiative to start RICE Education in 1985.
Samit Ray Foundation by Prof (Dr.) Samit Ray is an NGO registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act, 1961. It has been created with an aim to develop and propagate education and also to help financially weak students to pursue their career amongst others.
Since its inception Samit Ray Foundation has conducted various activities including conducting Maths Olympiad, providing financial aid to students, providing free medical aid etc.
The RICE Talent Scholarship Test (RTST) is the largest online merit-based scholarship test conducted by RICE Education in association with the Samit Ray Foundation which provides an excellent opportunity for aspirants preparing to crack government jobs.
The Scholarship was launched to recognise talents based on their merit and aid them in enrolling preparatory courses for various government competitive exams. Students can pursue a course of their choice with this scholarship at RICE Education.
The Scholarship is a great support for financially weak but meritorious students who sometimes find it hard to come up with external support in their preparation towards government jobs. Such obstacles usually prevent them from realising their dreams. However, such scholarships aim to bring them out of their current financial, and sometimes social, clutches so that they can build a better life. SRF and RICE Education are sure to make lasting impacts on their lives through this scholarship scheme.
The Scholarship Test will be held online. Each Test date has multiple exam slots to select from. Students can select their preferred time slot for taking the Test. The duration of the Test is 1 Hour for 50 marks. The Test will be based on multiple-choice questions from English, Mathematics, General Intelligence, General Knowledge and Current Affairs.
