The closing date for the submission of applications for the scholarship program, utilizing funds from the President’s Fund, for students who passed GCE (O/L) 2021/2022 and are sitting for the GCE (A/L) examination in 2024 has been extended to December 30.

It was earlier scheduled to accept the duly completed applications submitted to the Principals of the respective schools on or before today (23) for the scholarship program which was initiated as per the directives of President Ranil Wickremesinghe. However the closing date for the submission of applications was extended, considering the requests made to the President by the students and parents.

Hence the President’s Fund instructs the duly filled application forms to be submitted to the principals of the respective schools where the student sat for the GCE (O/L) examination before December 30.

The Presidential Secretariat has instructed the Education Ministry Secretary to formulate a mechanism to ensure that the applications are received from the offices of the schools during the vacation between December 23 and January 02, 2023.

The President’s Fund further informed that there will be no change in the days used for other activities related to selection even though the date of accepting applications has been extended to December 30.
