Alumni Association of University of Peradeniya is in the process of establishing a scholarship fund with the aim of providing financial assistance to full time undergraduates of the University of Peradeniya. Scholarships will be awarded on financial needs, academic success, and future plans of the applicants. These awards are open to undergraduates of all faculties of the university.
The committee has established strong contact with the university and discussions are underway to initiate a scholarship fund to assist needy students to complete their studies. This is a long term project which will create the opportunity for the alumni association & its members to give back something to our University and to contribute towards its development.
The committee has decided to establish a subcommittee to manage the scholarship fund and its utilization & members who are interested in this cause are invited to be a part of worthy cause.
In 2014 we have achieved this key objective by offering financial assistance to 16 undergraduate students who are in dire need of financial support. These students were chosen from 8 faculties of the University with the assistance from the Alumni Association of University of Peradeniya. The selected students receive an assistance of 12,000.00 rupees in two separate instalments. A quote from one of the recipients of financial support from us said.
