This year’s on-air seminar will be similar to the previous seminars held by Sampath Bank, where a dedicated phone line in addition to feedback facility via Facebook and SMS will be open for students. This will create a conducive platform for the exam candidates to interact with the resource persons during the discussion of the question papers and clear their doubts.

Both new and existing Samapth Bank savings account holders are eligible to collect the free scholarship question paper book in return for a deposit of R. 1,500 in their Pubudu or Sapiri savings account. The Grade 5 Scholarship exam candidates will be also eligible for a Scholarship reward if they have a minimum balance of Rs. 5,000 in their Pubudu or Sapiri savings account, prior to the Grade 5 Scholarship exam date.

Every year Sampath Bank steers a number of programs in line with Grade 5 Scholarship examination, providing motivational guidance and support to prepare the young candidates to confidently face the exam and achieve best results. 

As a bank that aims to spread the importance of inculcating the habit of saving from a very young age, Sampath Bank facilitates two children’s saving accounts namely Pubudu and Sapiri. Young savers can reap numerous benefits from both savings accounts, where Pubudu savers can enjoy a wide array of attractive gifts while Sapiri savers can enjoy high interest rates. 

Sampath Pubudu or Sapiri children’s savings accounts can be opened with a minimum of Rs. 500 and as the balance continues to grow, the child will be rewarded with respective gifts starting from a till, schoolbag, mountain bikes and Home Theatre systems to even wide screen LED TV. The top depositors of the year are also eligible to win tours to Singapore accompanied by a parent.
