Bitumix-Sisu Senehasa Scholarship Program at first identifies needy children through a tough screening process with the assistance of school and local government authorities and the especially handpicked lucky students become beneficiaries of this unique program from grade six till they pass out from the university. 

A committed team of dedicated staff members forming a monitoring committee supervises the progress of each student at every level and helps them overcome difficulties and continue with their studies at ease. Bitumix-Sisu Senehasa Scholarship Program with a worthy introduction of its noble mission ‘For those yearning for affection’, has at its base an immense task, that is to make all its recipients complete university education and become worthy citizens.
