ANC Continues to Reach Out to Local Students Through its Merit Scholarship Program

Dasun Seneviratne, the former cricket captain of Nalanda College, qualifies for a 75% scholarship for his Bachelor’s degree in Business awarded by the Northwood University, the U.S.A.
Dasun seneviratne is a budding cricketer prepared to make his mark in Sri Lankan cricket. He had performed well and scored constantly for his Alma Mater before he was made the cricket captain of Nalanda College in 2016. It was under his leadership their team was adjudged the “Best Behavior Team” at the Mobitel Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year Awards 2017 for demonstrating good sportsmanship throughout the “Battle of Maroons” (the “Big Match” between the two brotherly schools- Ananda and Nalanda). Dasun is a college colorsman as well. This talented youngster is with the Tamil Union at the moment.
Even though he must have been very busy with practices day and night, Dasun had completed his A levels successfully before he sought admission to ANC’s undergraduate program in Business. ANC offered a 75% scholarship to Dasun in recognition of his achievements. It’s only through such scholarship schemes that high achieving students like Dasun get opportunities to study and follow their dreams.
ANC Education, since its inception in 2002, has offered several avenues of assistance that enhances the academic success of every student. The merit scholarship program was introduced in an effort to meet the needs of promising and deserving students seeking a challenging college experience. Recipients are identified through evaluation of admission application materials including academic achievement, extracurricular activities, awards, honors, etc.
ANC has made providing support for education a cornerstone of its social responsibility program. Students who receive scholarships are supported until they complete their undergraduate studies provided that they remain inspired and maintain the required grade point average (GPA). Available financial assistance includes need based financial grants; merit based scholarships; low interest, long term loans from external sources; and monthly payment plans, everything to ensure that students remain motivated and inspired throughout their academic career.
Dasun is eagerly looking forward to commence his studies next week: “it’s a dream come true! Even though I have been very committed to achieve excellence in the field of cricket, I could never afford to neglect my studies. Soon after I completed my A Levels in the Commerce stream, my next step was to join an educational institute that would prepare me for a richly rewarding future. ANC was recommended by many a people owing to ANC’s unrivaled reputation in the field of international education in Sri Lanka. I too didn’t want to settle for less, so I’m very grateful to ANC, and I pledge to make sure this generous scholarship will be the first step on a path leading to a bright future,” says Dasun who is determined to strike the right balance between academics and sports to realize his career goal to hold a managerial position in a reputed organization while representing Sri Lanka in international cricket. ANC wishes him continued success!
