Jinnah scholarship presentation

COLOMBO: The annual distribution of the Jinnah scholarships among deserving Sri Lankan students of Advance, Ordinary and Bachelors level was held recently in Colombo under the auspices of the Pakistan High Commission.

Higher Education Deputy Minister M.M. Musthapha, was the Chief Guest on this occasion.

Every year Pakistan Government is funding the studies of deserving and top performing Sri Lanka students under this scheme. Last year, during the launch of the Jinnah Scholarship scheme, 20 students had received their stipends.

However, in view of the importance of this project which has served as a yet another cementing block for bilateral friendly relations between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the Government of Pakistan this year has granted Jinnah scholarships to 85 Sri Lankan students.

Applications for grant of scholarships were invited through the newspaper in February 2007. In response the High Commission received around 500 applications.

Each successful students was given a stipend of Rs. 30,000 to assist them in their studies.
