The Chancellor of Uva Wellassa University, Thripitakacharya, Dharma Keerthi Sri Sumangala Rathanapala Dhammarakkhitha, Most Venerable Bengamuwe Sri Dhammadinna Nayake Thero is very pleased about academic programmes, student activities and disciplines of students. It led to initiate a scholarship programme for UWU undergraduates. These scholarships are offered to the students who are truly in need of financial support. The selection would be done by a selection committee appointed by the Ven. Chancellor. The selected undergraduates receive Rs.1500/= per month for 10 month of academic year up to four years, until completion of the degree programme. However, the financial support would not be offered, if the particular student is absent or repeated for a particular academic semester or not fully enrolled for the semester. Furthermore, if a receiver of the scholarship is found guilty of any academic or non-academic offense, his/her scholarship will be terminated.
