Mahapola to be increased next year?



Plans have been made to increase the Mahapola scholarship allowance next year, Higher Education State Minister Dr. Suren Raghavan said. 

He said that discussions are being held with the Trade Ministry and the Mahapola Trust Fund in this regard.

The State Ministry said that Mahapola Merit monthly Bursary for university students is Rs.5,500 at the moment and Mahapola general monthly bursary is Rs.5,000.

Accordingly, Dr. Raghavan said the allowance is planned to be increased by 50 per cent from next year January due to the increase in inflation.
