Lokupitiya-Ganewatta Family Fund

My wife Nadee Lokupitiya and I started a family fund in 2015 to provide financial support to talented students in Sri Lanka. We believe that this will help them to better accomplish their educational goals. In addition, we hope to recognize and honor the students for what they have earned through hard work and dedication. We hope to expand this in terms of number of students given support and the amount of award in the coming years.

Funding for Middle School Students

We offer a monthly stipend for two economically disadvantaged middle school students. We prefer to select students from schools we attended. In addition teacher recommendation and financial status are also considered. Continuation of this scholarship is contingent on the academic progress of the student.

2015 Student Recipients:

Janaka Hashan, Grade 11, Siri Piyarathana Central College
Chamila Niroshani, Grade 6, Siri Piyarathana Central College

Funding for Undergraduate Students

In this category, undergraduate students are given a one time financial support. The selection is based on the overall academic performance of the applicant.

2015 Student Recipients:

Pamudini Narmada, University of Sri Jayawardanapura, Sri Lanka
Ramisha Ramlan, Uva Wellassa University of Sri Lanka
