The ENTECH scholarship scheme, Sri Lanka’s only merit based scholarship programme, was conceptualized by SLTC in order to lift the financial challenges that hinder the Sri Lankan youth from realizing their higher education dreams and was well received by them. This one-of-a-kind scholarship scheme was designed to provide full/part scholarships to deserving students based on their A/L results.
Thus, the students with 3 A passes at GCE A/L were eligible for full (100%) scholarships and students received 30% grant for each A pass, 20% for each B pass and 10% for each C pass under this pioneering scheme.
‘’The first ever ENTECH Scholarship Awarding is a significant milestone in SLTC’s journey.At SLTC, our mission is to open up higher education opportunities for all deserving Sri Lankan youth and we are confident that ENTECH programme will play a pivotal role in achieving this goal.
It gives us great pleasure to see the warm response we received for this unique programme and our heartiest wishes go to all beneficiaries of the scheme. We hope that SLTC experience, supported by ENTECH, will lead them to achieve great heights’’ said said Ranjith Rubasinghe, Founder President & CEO of SLTC.
