Twelve students were awarded scholarships under the L. A. Weerasinghe Scholarship Fund while 30 others were awarded scholarships based on merit at a ceremony at the Institute's premises.

Students from Ampara, Anuradhapura, Batticaloa, Badulla, Colombo, Galle, Gampaha, Hambantota, Kandy, Kalutara, Kegalle, Kurunegala, Matara, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Vavuniya received the scholarships from the Vice President of CA Sri Lanka, Arjuna Herath, who was the chief guest.

CA Sri Lanka President, Sujeewa Rajapakse said as the national body of accountants and as one of the largest tertiary education providers in the country outside the university system, CA Sri Lanka tries to ensure that students from all over the country got equal opportunities to study the institute's course.

"Our qualification is not restricted to the urban population in areas such as Kandy or Colombo."

He said that the scholarships are awarded from the CA Sri Lanka Scholarship Foundation which was launched in 2010 and is chaired by B. R. L. Fernando.

"The annual scholarship program is a part of our Institute's corporate social responsibility initiative," Rajapakse said.

He thanked CA Sri Lanka members for supporting the foundation with continuous contributions to ensure the long term success of this initiative.

CA Sri Lanka, Chief Executive Officer Aruna Alwis said that CA Sri Lanka is a 53-year-old organisation, and is among the oldest and most recognised professional bodies in the country. "At present we have 41,000 students following our chartered accountancy course," he said.
