The merit-based scholarship-awarding ceremony by the Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC) for Engineering and Technology students will be held on 25 February at the BMICH, Colombo. The ENTECH scholarships are awarded to motivate and encourage youth excellence, by offering students the opportunity of getting a world-class education at Sri Lanka’s only research-based, residential engineering university campus. The Chief Guest at the ceremony will be University of Moratuwa Chancellor Prof. K.K.Y.W Perera.

The ENTECH scholarships are offered to students who have excelled in their A/L examinations. The SLTC received several hundred applications from students who have shown an interest in following Engineering and Technology, and a selected number of scholarships will be awarded to those who have met the criteria: 100 percent fee waiver for students with 3As, as well as 30 percent fee waiver for each A, 20 percent off for each B, and 10 percent off for each C.  These students will then be enrolled at SLTC’s sprawling campus, located at Padukka, and can avail themselves of facilities such as fully-equipped research laboratories, libraries, on-site student guidance and sports and dormitory facilities. 

“It is the first time that we have received so many applications,” said SLTC President/CEO Eng. Ranjith Rubasinghe. “Awarding these scholarships will enable so many deserving students to achieve their dreams and aspirations of becoming qualified, responsible students, who will be the future of our nation-building.”

Focused on being Sri Lanka’s best research-based Engineering University, the SLTC offers BSc (Hons) Engineering degree programmes in Mechatronics and Civil Engineering. The School of Technology includes programmes in Environmental Technology and Agritechnology, while the School of Arts and Sciences offers Quantity Surveying and Bio Systems.
