SLCSF Scholarships are currently limited only to Sri Lankan students who have passed the most recent GCE (O/L) examination with a minimum of seven (7) A's and are now studying for their GCE (Advanced Level) examination. Unfortunately, SLCSF will not be able to currently help other applicants outside this target group due to limited funds.
Our current focus is on students in Sri Lanka who are studying in grades 12 and 13. The Foundation annually selects a number of students and provides Sri Lankan Rupees 1500 per student per month for a total of 24 months (two years).
How are the students selected?
By advertising in Sri Lankan newspapers, applications are invited from students who satisfy the following criteria:
Out of the applications received that satisfy the above criteria, the Board of Directors select the most deserving children based on a priority ranking of academic excellence, economic hardships and other factors such as family handicaps (eg: deceased parents), for the award of the scholarships. After the scholarship has been awarded, the student's suitability for continued assistance is evaluated, based on their performance in the examinations conducted by the schools.
Read the instructions carefully before completing the application. Complete and mail us either the English or Sinhala application form.
