    2005 Annual Scholarship Award Ceremony

    The annual scholarship awarding ceremony for 2005 was held on August 27, at Sri Sudassanaramaya, Battaramulla, Sri Lanka, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This ceremony was presided by our Patron and Advisor of the Foundation, Venerable Dr. Mirisse Dhammika, with the participation of 78 new students, their parents, some of the scholarship sponsors and other well wishers of the foundation. These students were selected from over 2000 applications received, based on their G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) examination results in 2005, the income per family member and considering other special circumstances (such as, deceased parents).

    The chief guest for the occasion was Mr. K.M.D.S. Jayathilaka – the deputy principal (retired) of Ananda College, Colombo. The President of SLCSF, Mr. Lakshman Perera and Mrs. Perera also participated as they were in Sri Lanka on a private visit.

    Did you know… In the 2004 GCE Advanced Level examination, one of our 2003/04 scholarship recipients, Priyadarshana Sampath of Galle, has become the island best in the Commerce stream.

  • Scholarship award certificates and study packs were distributed to all new scholarship recipients. Lunch and refreshments were provided for all the participants, with the generosity of Venerable Dr. Mirisse Dhammika and the Parami Organization in Battaramulla, Sri Lanka.

    We thank all the students and their parents for participation, after travelling long distances from remote villages and cities in some cases. We also thank the scholarship sponsors who participated and awarded certificates to the students they have sponsored. Our thanks also go to Venerable Dhammika, Mrs. Seetha Goonetilleke and all other supporters in organizing this successful event!

    New Scholarship Awards for 2005

    This year, we have awarded 78 scholarships. This is the highest number awarded during a year since the inception of the Foundation.

    While many of the students we have selected have obtained 10 A’s, all of them have obtained at least 9 A’s in the G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) examination in 2005.

    We congratulate these students for their academic achievements and wish them all the success in their future studies.

    Scholarship Sponsors for 2004/05 and 2005/06

    The following are our sponsors during the years 2004/05 and/or 2005/06. While some sponsors have contributed for more than one scholarship, some sponsors have collectively sponsored one scholarship.

    The following list also contains sponsors who have sent their contributions during 2005, but their contributions could not be used for a scholarship during 2006, as the contributions were received after the student selections were made in 2005. These contributions will be used for the new scholarships awarded in 2006.

    Did you know… This year we have awarded a record number of 78 scholarships! That is a 56% increase over the last year (50 awarded in 2004).

  • We are very thankful and grateful to all the sponsors for their generosity. We really appreciate the children sponsoring scholarships individually or as a group, thinking about other children who need financial help to continue their education.

    We sincerely apologize if we have missed any names or incorrectly spelt any names.
