John Keells awards scholarships for undergraduates

The John Keells Social Responsibility Foundation launched a scheme to grant scholarships to students reading for an Honours degree of Bachelor of Science in Transport and Logistics Management (BSc (T&LM) Hons.) at a ceremony at the Cinnamon Grand.

Speaking on behalf of John Keells Holdings PLC, Romesh David, President, Transportation and IT Groups, said, "JKH is delighted to have found a partner as responsive and proactive as we are in the University of Moratuwa.

In addition to fully sponsoring the English language program and the mentoring program for all first year undergraduates, JKH has undertaken to award scholarships to students in all four years of the degree program.

For students in the first year we offer up to five scholarships based on economic need. In the second, third and fourth years we award in each year seven scholarships to the students based on academic excellence and involvement in extracurricular activities. When all four batches are in place this will amount to 26 scholarships a year.

Additionally, we have made a commitment to place at least five students from each graduating batch in a John Keells Group company." He said, "I hope we have helped to make the path a little clearer and the future a little brighter.

The rest is up to you. For those of you who seize all that is on offer the opportunities for achievement will be endless."

The inaugural awards ceremony for the John Keells Holdings English Language Program for the undergraduates was also held at this event.
