Scholarship Fund

Proposed Scholarship Program – 2018

University of Kelaniya Alumni association of Canada (UKAAC)

  • Background

The Executive Committee of the UKAAC is enthusiastic of commencing a scholarship program for Sri Lankan students in need of financial help. We will specially focus on undergraduates of the University of Kelaniya and its associate universities (the “University”). Due to constrains such as lack of funds and difficulties in selecting and implementing mechanism  the idea was delayed multiple times. It is now high time to devise a process and improve on it until it is regulated.

  • Beneficiaries

Students of the University currently pursuing studies and facing extreme financial difficulties.

  • Monetary Value

Total financial support committed to a student per year will be Rs. 24,000 and will be released at a rate of Rs. 2,000 per month.  Continuation of the scholarship for the following year will not be guaranteed. However, after a re-assessment of academic performance and social activities, it will be deemed if the student will once again receive financial support. Priority may be given to the student in such instances.   

  • Selecting methodology

The UKAAC will be coordinating with the Alumni Association of the University of Kelaniya to select suitable beneficiaries at the beginning. Thereafter, the UKAAC expects to be directly involved in the process and will regulate the program liaising with the University as well.

  • Funds

The UKAAC is looking for sponsors from its membership and any other well wishers. The cost of one scholarship will be $150 per year and the difference between the equivalent currencies of the commitment and the value of the scholarship will be compensated by the UKAAC. For 2018, the expected number of scholarships to be awarded ranges from five to ten.

  • Acknowledgement

The UKAAC will present an award letter and certificate to the beneficiary and a copy will be provided to the respective sponsor. The individual scholarships may be named in memory of a person depending on the sponsor’s selection.

  • Discontinue of commitment

The UKAAC reserves the right to discontinue a scholarship or the scholarship program at any time.
