February 26, Colombo (LNW): In a bid to bolster educational opportunities for Sri Lankan children, President Ranil Wickremesinghe has introduced the “Presidential Academic Scholarship Programme 2024/2025,” the President’s Media Division (PMD) announced.

This initiative, facilitated through the President’s Fund, is geared towards extending financial aid to 100,000 students ranging from Grade 01 to Grade 11, encompassing all 10,126 schools nationwide, according to the official statement.

The programme is structured to annually grant scholarships to one hundred thousand (100,000) students across Grades 01 to 11, encompassing the entirety of Sri Lanka’s school network.

A total allocation of Rs. 3,600 million has been earmarked from the President’s Fund to sustain this endeavour.
