We launched the DAANA scholarship program in 2009 to help bright but needy students of Dharmaraja College, Kandy and were able to award 27 scholarships thanks to the generosity of many Sri Lankans in North America. You can find a brief account of the 2010 program here.
Due to the overwhelming response and support we received from you during the inaugural round concluded in 2010, we are looking forward to continuing this program in 2011 with a great confidence. We are in the process of screening more than 80 applications we received this year.
We thought it would be worthwhile to invite you to continue to contribute for this worthy cause. If you are interested, you can sponsor a student by your own or few of you can join to offer a scholarship.
Each scholarship based on academic merit is $100 for the whole year (Rs. 1000 per month). Also we will be awarding 5 scholarships worth of $50 each (Rs. 5000 per year) based on extra-curricular activities.
Please take advantage of this request if you are seeking an opportunity to help a needy Sri Lankan student. Visit our website for more details http://www.dharmaraja-na.org and if you are interested, please contact DAANA Board of Directors, a DAANA member, or reply to oldrajans.na_at_gmail.com
